Burglary in Redmond

Our Redmond Burglary Attorneys Understand The Severity Of This Crime

arrested criminal chargeIn Washington State, burglary is defined as illegally entering or remaining in a place (which may be indoors or outdoors) with the intent to commit a crime. Charges for burglary are independent of any other crimes that may be committed while the burglary is in progress, like assault or theft.

You can be charged with three different degrees of burglary, each with its own set of penalties depending on the crime's severity. If a person enters a home or business in Redmond with the intent of committing a crime, they face the serious consequences of a burglary conviction. Even if you don't follow through with any other crime, you can still be charged with burglary. It's also likely that you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of Washington State law.

Burglary laws in Washington State can be difficult to understand, but you can get help from an experienced Redmond lawyer who understands the law. The Redmond burglary lawyers at the Law Office of Jason S. Newcombe will aggressively defend you against burglary charges. Please review the following information to familiarize yourself with the law:

First Degree Burglary is a Class A felony. This is the most serious burglary felony for which you can be charged. If convicted of this serious crime, you will likely spend time in prison. If the burglary is committed using a deadly weapon, or someone is assaulted during the act, you will likely be charged with this offense.

Second Degree Burglary is a Class B felony. The penalties for a conviction are also quite devastating. You can be charged with second degree burglary if you enter any building with criminal intent, except for someone's home.

Residential Burglary is a Class B felony. This is the charge when you enter a home or dwelling with intent to commit an illegal act. Your primary goal should be to avoid a conviction at all costs, or at least minimize the severity of your penalties.

Our Redmond Burglary Lawyers Can Help You Seek A Diversionary Program

In burglary cases, the prosecution must prove that the defendant entered or remained on private property with criminal intent. This requires evidence, which is why our Redmond burglary attorneys conduct their own investigation into the details surrounding your arrest. If evidence was collected illegally, we can petition the court to have that evidence suppressed and maybe even be able to have your charges dropped.

If you are free from prior criminal convictions in the State of Washington, and are willing to make restitution, our Redmond burglary lawyers may be able to pursue a diversion program. This program prevents you from obtaining a criminal record, which is obviously a favorable outcome.

Criminal charges for burglary often accompany charges for other crimes, which is why it makes sense to work with a team of lawyers well versed in all areas of criminal law. Contact us today for your free consultation.
