Burglary, Theft And Property Crimes
A burglary charge varies based on circumstance.
First-degree burglary is defined as breaking into a residence and carries life as an optional sentence as it is defined as a violent crime. Third-degree burglary is a misdemeanor and is defined as breaking into a building that is nonresidential, unoccupied and without possession of a weapon.
Theft/larceny, on the other hand, is charged based on the amount of goods involved. Anything up to $2,000 is handled in magistrate's court. After that, it becomes grand larceny with no minimum sentence, after which there are minimum five-year sentences.
It goes without saying that these charges are extremely serious and can destroy the accused person's personal or professional life. If you or a loved one has been charged or accused, it is critical to reach out to a skilled lawyer as soon as possible to begin aggressively protecting your rights.
