When a person enters into a structure, conveyance, or dwelling without the permission of the owners, occupants, or residents for the purpose of committing any crime, the individual may be charged with the criminal offense of burglary.

To be charged with burglary, it is not required that the alleged offender physically performs a breaking and entering; the accused may simply trespass through an open door. Burglary offenses are typically committed when there are no potential victims or eye-witnesses present in the structure.

The difference between being charged with criminal trespass or burglary is that in a burglary, evidence must exist that:

A crime was committed during the course of the burglary; or
There is evidence that there was intent to commit a crime at the time of the burglary.

Law Enforcement and prosecutors will aggressively seek out any evidence which supports a burglary charge. Therefore, it is extremely important for those accused of a burglary crime to protect his or her legal rights by obtaining the advice and representation of experienced legal counsel as soon as possible.

The León Law Center, P.A., represents the legal rights and goals of those involved in burglary charge or other criminal defense issues in Kissimmee, Orlando, Osceola County, Orange County, and the entire Central Florida area. For a confidential legal consultation, please call 407.483.1182.

There are many crimes which may be associated with a criminal burglary offense, such as:

  • Theft or Robbery;

  • Assault or Battery;

  • Homicide;

  • Any Form of Fraud;

  • Extortion;

  • Sexual Assault or Rape;

  • Arson;

  • Destruction of Property or Vandalism;

  • Criminal Mischief;

  • or any other criminal offense.

When people (victims) are present during the course of a burglary, and a gun is involved, the crime is subject to Florida's 10, 20, life statute (775.087) which stipulates:

  • If convicted for pulling a gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 10 years in prison;

  • If convicted for firing a gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 20 years in prison;

  • If convicted of injuring or killing a victim by firing the gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 25 years to life in prison is authorized.

Due to the subjective nature in many burglary cases relating to the existence a crime being committed, or intent to commit a crime while in the structure or dwelling, seeking experienced legal counsel is extremely important for the accused to ensure his or her rights and freedom are protected.
