Burglary is a serious crime that can very serious consequences. If you are arrested for robbery in Queens, you will need to seek out the counsel of an experienced attorney. Burglary, as defined by the New York state statute, means breaking into someone else’s home for the purposes of committing a criminal act. For instance, if a person breaks into a home with the intent of stealing a big screen television, they have committed burglary. A burglary charge can land you in a great deal of trouble. Most burglary charges are considered a felony. If you are charged with burglary, it is imperative that you find an attorney quickly.

The charges of burglary in the state of New York have three levels:

Third Degree Burglary:

  • This is considered a felony that can carry 3 to 7 years in prison. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to plead to a lesser offense.

Second Degree Burglary:

  • Under this Class C violent felony, you can be sentenced to no less than 3 years and no more than 15. This charge comes with the following stipulations – Knowingly entering a dwelling to commit a crime; committing a burglary where someone is injured and committing a burglary while in possession of a weapon.

First Degree Burglary:

  • This is a violent Class B felony. Under this charge, you can receive 5 to 25 years in prison. This is charged when you enter a dwelling with and burglarize it while in possession of a firearm, burglar tools and a person is injured. Individuals should take note that this is a very serious charge that is on the same level as murder.

In some cases, there can be accompanying crimes such as grand larceny, assault, criminal possession of stolen property, and criminal possession of a weapon.

If you have been charged, it is important for you to find an experienced attorney to handle your case. Only a solid attorney can help you fight the charges. If you are arrested on a burglary charge, you don’t have a lot of time to get your affairs in order. It won’t take much for a prosecuting attorney to build a case against you.

Since the burglary laws have been broadened in Queens, prosecutors have a wide range of charges they can work with. The charges and penalties can be overwhelming, but a good defense attorney can be all the difference in you going to jail for a long time and securing you the lightest sentence possible.

A good Queens defense attorney is ready to fight for you. Whether inside the court or negotiating outside it, you will receive the best possible defense. These charges can be life-changing. It can result in you losing your livelihood and your personal life. Remember, just because you have been charged with burglary doesn’t mean you are guilty. There are many burglary cases that seemed open and shut, but ended in the defendant going free.

A skilled burglary attorney could plea your sentence down by 90%. Even worst case scenario, you will serve only a fraction of your sentence. This is what good burglary defense attorneys do. They know all of the tricks of the trade to ensure your rights are fully protected. So if you have been arrested for burglary and are in need of legal advice, reach out to an experienced Queens attorney. When you come in for your consultation, they will answer all of your questions and give you a realistic assessment of your case. Call us for assistance now.
