St. Augustine Burglary Lawyer
Get Protection from a St. Augustine Theft Crimes Lawyer
Most often, burglary refers to a property crime and involves the illegal
breaking and entering of another person’s premises, while purposing
to partake in unlawful activity. This crime is quite common and the penalties
reflect how serious it is to be convicted. You may be under arrest for
burglary, but it is important to remember that just because you were arrested,
it does not mean you will automatically be convicted.
When you retain a St. Augustine theft crimes attorney from Albaugh Law
Firm, our goal is to fight for reduced or dismissed penalties on your
behalf. We do this by assessing your case and building a strong defense
against the prosecution.
We may be able to utilize the following defenses to your charges:
- The owner allowed you to be on the property in the first place
- The property was actually open to the public
- That you did not enter the property intending to commit a crime
Even the smallest aspect of your case may have the potential to work in
your favor. This is why our team takes the time to understand your circumstances,
because we know that law enforcement often misses significant factors.
Get a team of former prosecutors on your side!
The prosecution has one goal – to convince the jury that you are
guilty of the crime you were charged with. Without a defense team on your
side, it becomes much easier for them to achieve this. As former prosecutors
ourselves, we uniquely understand both sides of the criminal justice system
and can use this perspective in your favor.
Burglary can be treated as a first, second, or third degree felony. This
means that the penalties are harsh, often including multiple years in
prison, thousands of dollars in fines, and even probation. Avoid giving
the prosecution a chance to convict you by reaching out to Albaugh Law Firm.
