Houston Burglary Defense Lawyer
Arrested for Burglary? Call the Law Offices of Jed Silverman.
Many people conceive of burglary as the illegal entry of a home for the purpose of theft. However, Texas law defines burglary in a much broader way.
A person is guilty of burglary under Texas law section 30.02 if he or she:
- Enters a habitation or building without the consent of the owner with the intent to commit a felony, theft or assault; or
- Remains in a habitation or building without the consent of the owner with the intent to commit a felony, theft or assault; or
- Enters a habitation or building without the consent of the owner and commits or attempts to commit a felony, theft or an assault
Given the wide range of fact scenarios that can result in burglary charges, many people face theft charges in Texas each year. If you have been charged with burglary or a related offense like burglary of a vehicle or criminal trespass, contact The Law Offices of Jed Silverman. Our law offices are located in Houston, Richmond, and Alvin, Texas.
