Burglary in Seattle

What is Burglary? Our Seattle Burglary Attorneys Explain

arrested criminal chargeLike many other crimes, burglary is broken down into various subcategories or “degrees” according to Seattle law. In every instance, Seattle burglary is defined as entering into a business or dwelling with the intent to commit a criminal act, but even if the “act” wasn’t committed you can still be charged with burglary. This means that either entering a building, or staying longer than invited, with the intention of committing a crime could lead to a burglary charge.

Understanding these laws can be difficult, so we recommend talking to one of our Seattle burglary lawyers about your specific case. The different degrees of Seattle burglary break down as follows.

First Degree Seattle Burglary is the most serious and indicates that a person entering a property with the intent to commit a crime was carrying a weapon or actually committed an assault. This is considered a Class A felony in Seattle State, so it is not a criminal charge one should take lightly.

Second Degree Seattle Burglary is charged when a person enters a building other than a residence with the intent to commit a crime. It is a Class B felony and requires careful consideration by a qualified Seattle legal professional.

Residential Burglary is also a Class B felony and indicates that a person illegally entered someone’s residence.
