Burglary is another form of stealing, but is considered a more severe type of crime. Burglary is defined as unlawfully entering a building with the intent to commit a certain crime. The keyword in this phrase is intent.
In general, burglary is harder for the prosecution to prove because of the need to prove intent at the moment the defendant entered the building. If the defendant chose to commit a felony or theft while inside the building, this would not constitute burglary.
If you’re being accused of burglary in Colorado, you need an aggressive criminal defense lawyer by your side to create a compelling argument that disproves any accusations regarding your “intentions.”
