Riverside Burglary Attorney
Experienced Theft Crime Defense
Burglary is a serious
theft offense that packs equally serious criminal penalties. A unique allegation
for the fact that burglary only requires the "intent" to commit
a theft or a felony while on the property of another, these charges require
bold and effective defense strategies. At Grech & Packer, our Riverside
criminal defense attorneys have spent years refining out abilities to
handle even the most complex cases, and we are prepared to work tirelessly
to defend you or your loved one against burglary allegations.
Depending on the circumstances involved, courts may prosecute defendants
for either first-degree burglary or second-degree burglary. As defined
by California Penal Code § 458 – 464, these charges are defined
First-Degree Burglary: Burglary in the first degree involves the entering of an inhabited dwelling
or building with the intent to commit a theft or felony while inside.
A situation viewed harshly by prosecutors, first-degree burglary poses
penalties of two, four, or six years imprisonment in a state prison.
Second-Degree Burglary: Any burglary that involves any other type of building or property that
is uninhabited will be prosecuted as second-degree burglary. This charge
carries a maximum term of imprisonment of one year.
When representing clients accused of burglary, our legal team draws from
Attorney Paul Grech's experiences as a former Deputy District Attorney
to anticipate the strategies used by prosecutors. With this insight and
our abilities to produce successful resolutions during trial, we are equipped
with the skills and versatility to negate the case of the prosecution
and present our clients' innocence clearly and convincingly.
