Westchester, NY Legal Advocate
Burglary Just Because You’ve Been Charged With a Crime, Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Defend Yourself

Westchester Burglary Lawyer

Also Serving Clients in the White Plains Area

In the State of New York, it is illegal to enter or remain someone else’s private property with any intent to commit a crime. If, for example, a retail store leaves one of its windows open and exposes its merchandise, a person could be charged with burglary if they reach into that window to steal an item. While the interpretation of this law will be subjective, any charge of burglary is serious. If you were arrested for or accused of this offense, it is crucial that you work with an experienced Westchester burglary lawyer who can fight for you. The Law Office of Michael D. Litman can help.

Put more than a decade of experience on your side today by calling (914) 268-6855 or contacting our firm online.

Consequences of a Burglary Conviction

For a prosecutor to successfully convict a defendant of burglary, they need to prove not only that the person had illegally trespassed, but also that they had criminal intent upon doing so. The latter accusation requires that they have solid proof of their narratives, and casting doubt on that narrative is the job of a criminal defense lawyer.

Being convicted of a crime can cause a lot of unnecessary harm to your life and reputation. With a criminal record following you around, you are likely to find it more difficult to find housing, employment, and loan opportunities.

In New York, other consequences of a burglary conviction will include:

  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • Prison sentences from 1-25 years depending on the severity of the alleged offense
  • More serious consequences if a weapon or threats of injury were used
