Burglary of a Structure in Miami

Unlawful Entry of a Structure

The unlawful entry of a structure could lead to a burglary charge or arrest if it can be shown that the person entering the structure had the intent to commit an offense. This is a third-degree felony. If there is a person already in the structure at the time the offender enters or remains, the charge can be raised to a felony in the second degree which potentially could result in imprisonment for up to 15 years. In the event that the offender is armed or becomes armed while in the structure, or commits battery on another, a felony in the first degree can be charged. A first-degree felony conviction could result in a prison sentence of up to 30 years.

A structure is basically considered to be any permanent or temporary building which has a roof over it. A Miami theft crime lawyer at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. should be contacted if you have any questions as to the potential consequences of being convicted of burglary.
