Los Angeles Breaking and Entering Lawyers

Los Angeles Breaking and Entering Lawyers

Many years ago, the act of burglary involved an individual breaking into a residence at night with the attempt to commit a felony therein. While this definition is still mostly true, the concept of burglary has evolved a great deal in recent years given that there have been many modern situations that have forced the statute and definition itself to adapt. For example, today, a burglar can commit a crime without it being night and without breaking and entering. The state of California is a divine example of a state that modified their statute in order to contain a provision that breaking and entering is not required to be convicted of burglary.

If you are in a situation where you have been accused of burglary, it is highly recommended that you retain counsel. The reason for this is that you will learn a great deal about the current definition of burglary that you would not know otherwise. In fact, what you do not know about burglary could be a small detail that would greatly assist you with your upcoming case. One example, is that in the state of California, there are no breaking and entering parts to the definition of burglary. Meaning, if you walked into a home with the front door wide open and stole the toaster, you would still be liable for burglary even if you did not physically break in to the home as the historic definition of burglary required.

What is important to understand about the lack of presence of a separate breaking and entering charge within the state of California is that there is absolutely the possibility of being charged with other potential crimes such as trespass, burglary, and vandalism. The reason that retaining counsel to assist your case is so critical in these instances is that perhaps your specific case does not meet the exact other criteria required for burglary, trespass, and vandalism. If this is so, you will want an attorney examining your case in order to ensure that there are no possible loop holes to get your charges substantially reduced or even dropped.
