New York Burglary Attorney
A person may be charged with burglary even when physical “breaking and entering” does not take place. Burglary involves entering any type of structure (such as a home, business, apartment, vehicle or boat). During the commission of burglary a person may enter by any means, including trespassing using stolen keys, climbing through an unlocked window or simply opening a door. Most burglaries do not involve face to face contact or the use of a deadly weapon, in contrast to many robbery cases.
Burglary may be charged as either a state or federal offense. It is extremely crucial to the outcome of your case that if you have been accused of burglary you speak to a New York burglary attorney immediately. A knowledgeable attorney can help to make sure that your rights are not violated by law enforcement and state or federal prosecutors. Since many burglary cases do not involve any witnesses, prosecutors often rely heavily on surveillance video and crime scene evidence to obtain a conviction.
