Charged with burglary?
If you have been charged with burglary, your first action should be to retain the services of a skilled Tampa Bay criminal defense attorney. It is very frightening to be arrested or questioned in a theft crime, especially if you do not have someone by your side answering your questions and fighting for your defense. Prosecutors seek the maximum penalties in many types of offenses, including burglary.
Burglary is essentially defined as entering a dwelling, a structure, or a conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein. It is difficult to prove intent in many instances. At Greater Tampa Law P.L., we believe that you deserve the best defense possible and will thoroughly investigate the evidence surrounding your charge. A defense strategy can then be formulated with the goal of having your charges dismissed or reduced. Burglary is a felony offense and if you are found guilty you could be sentenced to imprisonment for life, depending on the circumstances of the case.
