Burglary Definition and Penalties
Breaking and entering is the crime of trespassing someone else’s
property without their explicit permission. Breaking and entering with
the intent to commit any other crime once on or inside the property is
known as burglary. Due to the fact that burglaries generally occur when
no one else is on the property, they have become synonymous with theft
crimes and have been categorized as one by Wisconsin State legislation.
Penalties that can be used in a burglary conviction include:
- 6 months to 12 years in prison
- Up to $25,000 fine
- Lengthy probationary period
Additional fines and jail time can be added onto burglary sentences based
on the circumstances of the case and the arrest. For example, if you were
found to be in possession of lockpicking tools when you were arrested,
it could be used as evidence of premeditation to commit burglary, increasing
the severity of your alleged crime.
There is No Time Like the Present to Defend Yourself
The prosecution has gotten to work on their side of the case already. You
should not give them an advantage by hesitating to retain a Milwaukee
criminal defense lawyer. In many ways, taking the initiative to defend
yourself with a professional’s help can take the prosecution off-balance,
weakening their case before your trial even begins.
