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.

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.
