Theft Crimes: Burglary
Are you or a loved one facing burglary charges? Theft crimes are defined as any criminal act that occurs when a person steals the property of another without consent. Theft crimes can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, based upon the value of the property, facts such as the presence of a weapon, and the prior criminal record of the defendant. If the alleged stolen property is valued above $500 it typically causes for a felony charge. In Connecticut there is a group of statutes generally called the "three strikes laws" that allow for an offender who has a prior record of a serious felony crime, such as burglary or robbery, to face much more severe penalties.
