Riverside Burglary Lawyer

Experienced Defense for Burglary Charges in CA

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 Law Offices of Grech & Packer, our Riverside burglary 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 as follows:

  • 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.
