Fighting Burglary Charges In Texas
The punishments for burglary vary depending upon the type of building and the intent of the alleged perpetrator. For instance:
- Burglary of a building is punishable by up to two years in prison
- Burglary of a habitation (a building where someone lives) is punishable by up to 20 years in prison
- Burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another crime such as assault or sexual assault is a first-degree felony, which can be punishable by as much as life in prison
Regardless what type of burglary charge you are facing, it is important to consult with an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. Making statements to the police before talking to your lawyer can only hurt your case.
