Burglary is the unlawful entry to a dwelling place or business of another with the intent to commit a theft. Burglary is prosecuted as a felony, and may be aggravated if a weapon was used or someone was injured. The consequences of a conviction may include prison. Because Santa Fe has a burglary problem, judges often give severe sentences for this particular crime.
A lawyer will make sure that the Police and District Attorney have followed the strict rules, laws, and regulations that apply to every criminal case, and get both sides of the story. We can question whether the arrest was constitutional, and interview the alleged victim. Did the officer have a warrant? Was I read my rights? Did I consent to be searched? Was this an accident? Can we suppress the evidence? These questions and many more should be evaluated in every case. Please call Aaron J. Boland for a free consultation.
