Minnesota Burglary Attorney

HomePractice AreasBurglary

Burglary is unlawfully breaking and entering into another's property with the intent to commit a criminal act. Since Burglary is typically charged as a felony, it is important that you choose an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend you.

Our Minnesota Criminal Lawyer Defends All Degrees of Charges

The “degree” of Burglary varies. For example, First Degree Burglary occurs when a building is entered, without consent, while someone is in the building; or when the burglar enters and possesses a dangerous weapon; or when the burglar assaults someone in the building. An individual convicted of first degree burglary could be sentenced up to 20 years in prison or a fine up to $35,000, or both. Second Degree Burglary occurs when the building is a dwelling; or when part of the building is a bank or pharmacy; or a tool is used to gain access to property/money. A conviction for second degree burglary could result in up to ten years in prison or a fine up to $20,000, or both. Third Degree Burglary occurs when the burglar either commits or intends to commit a gross misdemeanor or felony inside. The sentence is up to five years in prison or a fine up to $10,000, or both. Fourth Degree Burglary occurs when the burglar commits or intends to commit a misdemeanor inside, other than stealing. An individual convicted of fourth degree burglary may be sentenced up to one year in jail or a fine up to $3,000, or both.

Halberg Criminal Defense represents individuals throughout the Twin Cities, and all of Minnesota, facing Burglary charges.
