Burglary Charges

Looking for an attorney for a burglary case in Round Rock?

Burglary is a similar offense to criminal trespass but more serious. This is a type of theft crime in Texas that can result in harsh consequences.

In order to be charged with burglary, the prosecutor must prove all of the following beyond a reasonable doubt:

  • The defendant entered into a private habitation or part of a building not open to the public;
  • Did not have consent from the owner; and
  • Had the intent to commit a felony or theft offense

It can also be the case that the defendant did not necessarily enter into the building unlawfully, but remained hidden in property beyond the hours open to the public and had the intent to commit a felony. It is important to note that this offense involves the intent of the defendant, it does not specify that the felony or theft actually had to take place.

Burglary Penalties

The charges that follow a burglary offense will depend on the property entered, the victim and the details of the offense.

The potential sentences and penalties include:

Second Degree Felony Burglary:

  • Between two and 20 years in prison
  • A fine of up to $10,000

State Jail Felony Burglary:

  • Between 180 days and two years in state jail
