Have you been charged with burglary? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
The crime of burglary may bring to mind a masked man sneaking into a building at night to steal something valuable. However, not all burglaries involve theft. The crime of burglary involves entering a building or room with the intent to commit any felony, or a theft.
If faced with this serious felony charge, you need a qualified and experienced attorney to handle your defense. The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates will bring our 15 years of experience to the table when advocating for your defense. We handle all kinds of burglary cases including:
- First degree burglary (burglary of a residence)
- Second degree burglary (commercial burglary)
- Auto burglary
Possible Defenses to a Burglary Charge
Burglary is an intent crime, meaning the prosecutor must prove that you intended to commit a crime before you entered the room or building. This could be difficult for them to prove, so as your defense attorneys, we will closely examine the facts to determine whether any evidence points towards your intent. If you did not form intent until after you entered the building, the crime is not a burglary; however you may be charged with another crime.
We will also consider the possibility that you legitimately believed you had a right to the items you took (if you are accused of a burglary involving theft), that you were falsely accused, or that there is insufficient evidence to support a conviction.
You can rely on our experienced legal team to carefully examine the prosecution’s evidence to identify any weaknesses, including illegally obtained evidence. We can then use any weaknesses we discover to either convince the prosecution that they are not likely to win at trial and therefore should drop the charges, or to negotiate with the prosecutor for a plea deal that carries a reduced sentence and/or charge.
We are very familiar with the local prosecutors and judges and can use this along with our expert assessment of the evidence in your case to ensure that the outcome of the case is as advantageous as possible for you.
