Miami Theft Crime Attorney

What is burglary of a conveyance?

According to the Florida Burglary Statutes, "conveyance" means any motor vehicle, ship, vessel, railroad vehicle or car, trailer, aircraft, or sleeping car. Entering a conveyance with the intent to commit a crime is a felony offense. Even if an individual was invited into a vehicle and then that invitation is withdrawn, remaining in the vehicle is considered a felony if it can be proven that there was intent to commit a crime.

If the conveyance is occupied at the time of entry, this raises the offense to a second degree felony. A felony in the first degree can be charged if someone is armed while committing burglary of a conveyance or becomes armed during the act. Committing assault or battery upon a person during a burglary is also a first degree felony. A Miami theft crime lawyer should be hired as a first step after being arrested for a burglary crime.

Felony Charges for Vehicle Theft

The theft of a vehicle is considered " grand theft". This occurs when a person deprives an individual of their property temporarily or permanently. This crime is a third degree felony and can be punishable by up to 5 years in prison. Depending on circumstances, burglary and vehicle theft could lead to extended prison sentences if any kind of battery took place.
