Burglary Attorney Serving
Paterson, New Jersey & the New York Metropolitan Area

Defend Against Charges of Breaking and Entering

Burglary, also known as breaking and entering, is a crime and, depending on the seriousness of the charge, are prosecuted either as a felony in the county or state courts, or a misdemeanor in municipal court. Charges related to burglary, and sometimes bundled with a burglary charge, include:

  • Trespassing

  • Fraud

  • Home invasion

  • Theft

  • Possession of burglary tools

Burglary involves illegal entry into a building or automobile with the intent to steal. However, burglary charges can be brought even if nothing is stolen. Sometimes, possession of burglary tools near the proximity of a crime can be a reason for questioning if not an arrest. Sometimes, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is the cause for a legal challenge when the police want to question you because of where you were at a certain time even if you’ve done absolutely nothing wrong.

Consult a Lawyer Before Talking to The Police

Being arrested for burglary can be a sign of troubling personal issues related to drug dependency or financial duress. If you are arrested for burglary, do not talk to the police about why you entered illegally and stole. Do not try to justify your actions with the police. Or worse, explain to the authorities why you were trespassing if caught without anything in hand. You could be hit with fraud charges if your claims are found to be untrue! Exercise your right to remain silent, and get a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity.
