Accused of Burglary in Colorado?

Retain a Proven Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Attorney

Burglary has a number of different definitions under Colorado law and is usually associated with breaking and entering or trespassing crimes. In the case of burglary, however, the intent to steal property that is not yours must be proven by the prosecution. Other circumstances of the incident, such as the type of structure being broken into and the potential for any violence, have great bearing on the classification and severity of the charges and potential penalties for this crime.

If you've been accused of burglary, it's critical that you seek competent and emphatic representation as soon as possible.

Common Types of Burglary Charges

Colorado statutes categorize the crime of burglary into three different degrees. They are organized by level of severity in the eyes of the court and carry increasing penalties.

Burglary charges can include:

  • First degree burglary: Involves weapons, threats, and/or assault
  • Second degree burglary: Involves illegally entering a building for theft
  • Third degree burglary: Involves unlawful access to safes, vaults, cash registers, etc.

The penalties for these crimes may vary, but they are all considered felonies. First degree burglary, the most serious of these crimes, can result in up to 12 years in prison and $750,000 in fines. For more specific information on penalties for burglary, call Damascus Road Law Group today.
