Bordentown, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/01/2019 -- The Law Office of Zapicchi & Liller LLP, practices many areas of law, from estate planning to municipal law.
They also take cases in criminal law, protecting the rights of the accused in Monmouth County, NJ, and the surrounding areas. Their criminal law expertise ranges from bad checks to weapon possession. One of the most serious charges they defend is burglary.
Although the details may vary from one state to the next, the nationwide legal definition of burglary contains four criteria.
First of all, there has to be a structure that's being burglarized. A structure doesn't have to have a foundation or even a solid roof. Something as simple as a tent or campsite qualifies as a structure.
Then there has to be an entry: presence within the structure, whether a private or public building, without permission or legal right. This presence does not have to physical; using a tool to reach inside a building is still considered entry.
Force doesn't necessarily involve a broken window or the use of a crowbar. Forcible entry can be an ordinary action like turning a doorknob or walking into a store in cases of shoplifting.
In the latter case, it all comes down to intent, which happens to be the fourth facet. Even when nothing is stolen, the intent to steal, along with the three previous elements, constitute burglary.
Burglary is a serious offense. It can lead to heavy fines, a prison term of up to five years, and a permanent blot on a criminal record. To hire experienced and compassionate criminal lawyers in or around Hamilton Township, NJ, call or send an email to contact Zappicchi & Liller.
