Charged with Burglary? You NEED An Attorney

Burglary, also known as breaking and entering, is the act of entering someone else’s property without the owner’s consent and with the intention of committing a crime. Like most other states, Missouri does not distinguish between the various types of burglary or the type of property broken into: Any burglary is a serious Class C felony, with the penalty of up to 7 years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.

A first-degree burglary, however, is punished by up to 15 years in prison in the state of Missouri, if the defendant is in possession of a deadly weapon, threatens or inflicts physical injury on someone in the building, or if another person is simply on the premises regardless of whether the accused is aware of this fact at the time when the crime is committed.

Understanding the crime you’re being charged with:

What You Should Do

If you are facing felony burglary charges, you need to call a lawyer immediately after your arrest. In most cases, the police will offer to reduce your sentence if you admit to committing the crime, either verbally or by signing a written confession. However, please note that Missouri Law prohibits police officers to draft legal agreements. These tactics are meant to simply help the prosecutor prove your guilt later – at trial – and enable a quick recovery for the property owner. Before signing a confession, it is very important that you call your burglary defense attorney who will oversee the creation of this legal exchange, if necessary, without causing further damage to your case.

Also note that if an officer appears at your door to question you regarding stolen property, they most likely do not have enough evidence to charge you with burglary. If there was enough evidence, they would have arrived with a warrant. Therefore, you would be within your legal rights to not let them in at least until you have called your lawyer.
