Charlotte Burglary Lawyer
Charged with burglary?
Whether it takes place at a home, office building, or any other establishment, burglary is a felony offense. Both robbery and burglary are felony theft offenses, but the main difference is that an individual can be charged with burglary even if no actual theft took place. One can be charged just by unlawfully entering another individual’s property without permission, with intent to steal or commit another felony. It is very important to have a
Charlotte criminal defense lawyer on your side if you have been charged with this offense.
