Burglary And Trespass Charges
What is Burglary in Florida?
Burglary means entering a house, building or vehicle with the intent to commit a crime therein. Contrary to popular myth, the crime intended does not need to be theft – it could be any crime. Moreover, the crime does not actually need to be committed. Intent to commit a crime is enough for a Burglary charge.
Punishments for a Burglary Conviction
Burglary is a felony punishable by several years in prison and, like many other criminal charges, can come with enhanced penalties depending on the facts of the case.
Aggravating factors include the use of violence or weapons, damage to property, or entry in a home.
Understanding Trespass in Florida
Trespass is entering another person’s property without authorization. Generally, this offense is charged as a misdemeanor; but a felony charge of Trespass is certainly possible.
