Burglary is a felony offense that can carry extremely serious penalties, including substantial jail time. There are specific criteria that must be met in order for a burglary charge to stick in Pennsylvania. An experienced Norristown burglary defense lawyer can fight the merits of the charge and work to ensure that you are not convicted of a crime you did not commit.
At The Law Offices of Basil D. Beck III, I fight aggressively to protect the rights of those who have been accused of burglary. I understand the burden of proof the prosecution carries in these matters, and I know how to find the holes in its cases that can be used to build a stronger defense on your behalf.
Under Pennsylvania law, burglary involves the act of entering a building illegally with the intent of committing a crime. While most people associate burglary with a theft crime, the intent to commit an assault or any other type of criminal offense is sufficient for burglary charges to be filed against you.
In every case, I conduct a thorough analysis of the prosecution’s case and the evidence to be used against you and work directly with you to understand exactly what happened. I build the strongest possible defense for your case and work tirelessly to find a way to beat the charges and seize any opportunity to have the charges against you dismissed. If a dismissal is out of reach, I will work to negotiate the charge down to a lesser offense.
Contact one of my offices in Norristown, Lansdowne or Paoli to discuss your burglary charge. I offer a free consultation so we can go over what has happened and discuss the available options to achieve the best possible result in your case. You can reach me by phone at 610-239-8870 or via e-mail.
