The consequences of a burglary conviction

Robbery is a serious crime where even a petty theft can have employers keeping you off their potential list of candidates due to a negative background check. Most employers are hesitant to hire anyone with a criminal record. Burglary is defined as the breaking and entering into premises with the motive of committing a criminal act such as assault, battery, or damage to property. Burglary charges can be levied against an individual even for trespassing or breaking into a property without causing any harm or theft. Most burglary charges are considered first, second, or third degree felonies. Other charges include criminal trespass, and receiving stolen property. Punishment for burglary conviction can range from 5 years to life imprisonment, depending on the severity of the offense, which is why it is wise to consult a qualified attorney to defend your case and protect your legal rights.
