Charged with Burglary? We Can Defend Your Case.

Florida defines burglary as the unlawful entry of a dwelling, structure, or conveyance owned by, or in possession of another person, to commit an intentional felony or a theft. If you’re accused of a burglary, it’s essential to contact our lawyer before communicating further with law enforcement, as what you say and how you act may work against you in court later. Attorney Adam Less is a former police officer, meaning his knowledge of how the other side operates when handling burglary charges could serve your case immensely when building a defense.

Under certain circumstances, your burglary charges may equate to a felony:

  • First degree felony: The offender commits assault or battery, is armed with explosives or a dangerous weapon, or enters an occupied or unoccupied dwelling or structure and uses a motor vehicle as an instrument to assist in committing the offense, and thereby damages the dwelling or structure, or causes property damage in excess of $1,000
  • Second degree felony: The offender does not make an assault or battery and is not armed with a dangerous weapon or explosive, and the offender enters or remains in a:
    • Dwelling, with or without another person in the dwelling at the time the offender enters or remains
    • Structure, and there is another person in the structure at the time the offender enters or remains
    • Conveyance, and there is another person in the conveyance at the time the offender enters or remains
    • Authorized emergency vehicle
    • Structure or conveyance when the offense intended to be committed therein is theft of a controlled substance
  • Third degree felony: The offender does not make an assault or battery and is not armed with a dangerous weapon or explosive, and enters or remains in a structure or conveyance without another person present at the time the offender enters or remains

How We Can Help

Burglary is a serious crime with harsh penalties. Most states, especially Florida, can be ruthless when prosecuting burglary offenses. Our firm is relentless in the courtroom and can apply hard-hitting tactics to negotiate for the penalties of your case to be minimized or dismissed.

Attorney Adam Less can employ defenses such as:

  • Intoxication
  • Consent
  • Lack of intent to commit a crime after entering the property
  • Duress
  • Insanity
  • The stolen items belonged to you, or you were legitimately entitled to them
  • Mistaken identity
