Burglary is generally defined as the illegal entry or entry without consent into a building with the purpose of committing a crime, such as theft. Burglary charges have different degrees and have different consequences depending on a number of factors, including:

  • The type of property or building that was burglarized
  • Whether another person (not an accomplice) was present in the building
  • Whether a weapon was used during the commission of the crime
  • The type of business that may have been occupying the building (such as a bank or pharmacy)


The confinement of an individual without consent or removal of an individual from one place to another without consent constitutes kidnapping. The punishments are dependent on:

  • Whether or not the victim was released in a safe place
  • Whether or not the victim was harmed during the kidnapping or imprisonment
  • The age of the victim
  • The length of imprisonment
  • Whether the victim was held for ransom
  • Whether the victim was held to facilitate the commission of a felony

Those accused of burglary and/or kidnapping are facing prison sentences, fines and a permanent criminal record. Ensure that your rights are protected.
