Determined Attorney Fighting For the Rights of Fargo Clients Charged With Burglary
North Dakota law defines burglary as a crime in which you deliberately enter or hide in a building or occupied structure without permission while the property is not open to the public in order to commit a crime there.
A burglary is usually charged as a Class C felony. The crime becomes a more serious Class B felony if it happens at night and involves the perpetrator either inflicting bodily injury or physical restraint on another person, or possessing a weapon.
Defending Against Your Burglary Charge
If you or a loved one is charged with a burglary, it’s important to know that unless you’ve confessed to the crime, the prosecutor must rely on circumstantial evidence to prove you intended to commit a crime. If you can prove that you’re actually fully innocent, had permission to enter the premises, didn’t intend to commit a crime after entering, or were coerced into the situation by someone else, you may be able to beat the burglary charge. You’ll find it to your advantage to retain the type of trustworthy legal help you’ll find with our firm.
