Whether you are guilty and need to negotiate a plea or you simply want a jury trial (whether innocent or guilty), we will defend you. Your future is our business.


Burglary First Degree generally involves breaking and entering a dwelling or building. First Degree Burglary is a serious felony involving breaking into a dwelling house for the purpose of committing another felony (such as theft or harm to another) — generally while someone is at the home. Breaking and entering while armed and dangerous is also Burglary I. It is punishable by 7 to 20 years. In order to obtain parole for Burglary I, the inmate must serve 85% of the sentence.


Burglary Second Degree is also a felony and involves breaking into any building (i.e., a house, a storage shed, barn, business property, automobile/car, or even a vending machine) with the intent to steal or commit a felony. The penalty range is 2 to 7 years for Burglary II.


There is a misdemeanor provision for “breaking and entering” with the intent to commit larceny or malicious mischief. It is punishable by up to one year in the County Jail and perhaps up to $500 fine.
