Burglary Attorney in Miami

Charged with burglary? Get an aggressive criminal lawyer on your side.

Burglary is a crime under the category of theft. It involves the act of someone entering another's property without permission of the owner accompanied with an intention to commit a crime. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney in Miami at the law firm of Seltzer Law, P.A. knows how to defend you if you have been charged with burglary. We have extensive experience successfully handling such cases, and we can help you.

A prosecutor has the burden to prove that a person intended to commit a crime when he entered someone else's property. All he needs to show is that the offender entered the property in a secret or covert manner without permission. The property can be a structure, a dwelling or conveyance. Any building with a roof, along with grounds surrounding it, is considered a structure. A dwelling is any structure which houses people, including surrounding grounds and porches, and this term can also include tents and mobile homes. A car, ship, truck or any other vehicle that can transport passengers is a conveyance.

Burglary Charges in Miami: The Penalties

The penalties for a burglary conviction vary. The accused could get as little as probation or as much as life in prison. If people were present when a property was burglarized, or if the accused used a firearm and others were injured during the burglary, the penalties could be severely enhanced. Many people have been charged with burglary when there was no intention to commit a crime, or the prosecution could not prove it. Our skills include poking holes in the prosecution's case where there are weaknesses or mistakes. This can lead to reduced charges, or even a dismissed case.
