Types Of Burglary Charges

Every day, there are people throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the Twin Cities who have been accused of theft crimes. Burglary is one of those offenses. There are four degrees of burglary charges. First-degree burglary is the most serious.

  • If you have been accused of committing assault or using a weapon in the commission of an alleged burglary, then you could be charged with first-degree burglary.
  • If the alleged act involved forceful entry into a bank, home, pharmacy, or any building and using a tool to gain access to property or money, the charge is typically a second-degree burglary charge.
  • If a structure is entered with the intent to commit a felony or steal something, the charge is typically a third-degree burglary charge.
  • If the burglary didn’t involve stealing, then it is a fourth-degree burglary charge.

If you have been charged with any of these levels of burglary, you need a theft attorney who can help you fight for the best possible result.
