Conroe Burglary Defense Lawyer

Burglary, Robbery & Theft Charges in Montgomery & Walker County

If you have been charged with burglary, it is important that you speak with a burglary crimes attorney immediately. If you are convicted, you face severe legal consequences that will adversely affect your future quality of life. By working with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney, you stand a better chance of fighting your criminal charges, or having your criminal charges reduced or dismissed.

What Constitutes the Crime of "Burglary?"

A person commits burglary if without the effective consent of the owner the person enters a habitation or building with intent to commit a felony, theft, or assault.

People who commits burglary may or may not use a weapon during the commission of the crime. In most states, breaking into another person's residence is considered a more serious offense than breaking into a commercial property due to the immense distress of the victims and the personal nature of the crime. Therefore, a person who burglarizes a residence may be subject to harsher legal penalties if convicted than a person who burglarizes a gas station.

Burglary Penalties in Texas

Burglary is a felony offense. Any person who is convicted of burglary may be sentenced with:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Restitution

Additionally, the person's burglary conviction will show up on his/her criminal record, which is accessible to the public. When a person has a burglary conviction on his/her criminal record, it can be very difficult for him/her to obtain employment, housing, and education opportunities.
