Oklahoma City Robbery and Burglary Charges Defense Lawyer
What Is The Difference Between Robbery And Burglary
Robbery and burglary are both types of theft crimes; however, each has its own specific definition.
- Burglary: Burglary is when a person enters onto someone else’s premises with the intent of stealing money or objects. A burglary can be with forcible entry (breaking a window) or non forced entry (going in through an unlocked door).
- Robbery: Robbery requires an intent to steal someone else’s property and the threat of violence or the actual use of violence. A common example is a gas station holdup.
Each charge will come with different potential punishments. Burglaries can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the specific circumstances involved. Robberies, however, are charged as felonies, due to the threat or use of violence.
Regardless of your specific charges, your future is at stake. You risk jail or prison, extended probation and a permanent record. That is why it is vital to think hard about whom you want to defend you.
