Don’t Let Them Rob You Of Your Finances And Freedom
Burglary is a serious felony in Pennsylvania. Typically, it occurs when someone enters a building with the intent of committing a theft crime. Burglary charges may also be accompanied by a weapons charge, which can escalate a situation and lead to harsher prosecution.
An arrest and conviction for robbery, burglary, or breaking and entering can land you in jail, drain your finances with heavy fines and establish a criminal record. You need the help of a defense lawyer who can help you avoid those negative outcomes and ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
We Know The Serious Situation You’re About To Face

A burglary or robbery charge is usually accompanied by an offense such as:

- Possession of an instrument of crime
If a home was occupied during a burglary, the consequences for the convicted could be a prison term of 10 to 20 years. Second-degree burglary is defined as entering an unoccupied home with the intent of committing a crime. Third-degree burglary is for entering an unoccupied building or business.
