Burglary of a Dwelling

According to Florida Burglary Statutes, a dwelling means "a building or conveyance of any kind, including any attached porch, whether such building or conveyance is temporary or permanent, mobile or immobile, which has a roof over it and is designed to be occupied by people lodging therein at night." Burglary of a dwelling is a felony in the third degree and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison. If a person is armed while burglarizing a dwelling, or commits an assault or battery, the charge can be increased to a first-degree felony which could result in them being imprisoned for up to 30 years.

It is possible to successfully defend against a burglary charge. We have years of experience in the field of criminal law and understand exactly how the justice system works. Put our knowledge and professionalism to work for you if you need legal help defending against a burglary charge.
