Orlando Burglary Lawyer

Florida Burglary Defense Lawyer

In Florida, burglary is defined as the entering of a dwelling, conveyance or structure with the intent to commit a crime. The language may sound old-fashioned, but the key element is the word "entering." You can be charged with burglary for entering someone's house, a business, or a vehicle (conveyance) if you intend to commit a crime such as theft or assault.

Burglary can be an extremely serious crime in Florida. At The Umansky Law Firm, we are here to protect you from potentially life-changing consequences such as prison time and a permanent criminal record as a convicted felon.

What Is Burglary in Florida?

In Florida, you do not have to actually break into a structure to be charged with burglary. You can be charged with burglary if you open a car door and take a purse that was left on the seat.

Burglary is especially damaging if you commit breaking and entering in addition to the crime. If you enter an occupied structure and this results in a form of assault or battery, you're going to be facing harsh charges.

The difference between entering an unoccupied vehicle or structure and one that is occupied is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony. If you commit battery in the process of a burglary, you can be charged with a life felony. You do not have to cause serious injury to be charged with battery. Simply pushing or grabbing someone in connection with a burglary can result in charges that could put you in prison for life.

Defenses in Burglary Cases

There are defenses in burglary cases. One defense may be that you thought you had a right to be where you were. Our experience as former prosecutors allows us to give you an honest evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the state's case so that you will know your options from the start.
