  • Armed Burglary
  • Burglary to a Structure
  • Burglary to a Conveyance
  • Burglary to a Dwelling

To prove a Burglary, the State of Florida has to prove that the arrested person entered a structure, a dwelling, or a conveyance (car) with intention to commit a crime. You don't have to even actually enter the building. If you touch the building with the intent to commit a crime, that may be enough to prosecute you. The prosecutor has to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt. There are defenses to Burglary crimes such as if the place entered was open to the public or the arrested person was invited to enter or remain there. If convicted of a Burglary to anything other than a conveyance (car), the accused is up against sentencing guidelines that almost always require incarceration.

We have years of experience and have represented hundreds of clients charged with Burglary crimes.
