Burglary of Conveyance Miami, FL
What Is Burglary of 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 Even if an individual was invited into a vehicle and then that invitation is withdrawn, remaining in the vehicle is considered a felony if it can be proven that there was intent to commit a crime.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.
