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 burglary lawyer 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.
