Theft Or Burglary

Don't Dismiss A Theft or Burglary Charge

You may think because you are charged with a property crime, like burglary or some other type of property theft, that you do not need to be concerned with the charges. Yes, the penalties are less severe for most property crimes, but every criminal charge is a threat to your liberty.

There is also the cumulative effect. If you have prior convictions, any additional convictions or guilty pleas could allow for more severe sentencing and longer prison terms, especially if you are charged with a violent crime or a serious felony.
