Burglary Law

Burglary law refers to the prosecution and defense of crimes in which the defendant is accused of entering into or remaining inside a structure with the intent of committing a theft or other serious illegal act. The offense is usually treated as a felony, meaning that convicted individuals face a year or more in prison. Many states impose enhanced penalties if the structure entered into is a home, or if it was occupied at the time the crime was committed.
