In Connecticut, burglary is defined as entering a dwelling without permission and with the intent to commit a crime inside. There are aggravating factors that can heighten the severity of a burglary charge. For instance, if there is another person in the building aside from the alleged perpetrator, it becomes a second-degree felony. If a person is carrying a deadly weapon while committing a burglary, it becomes a first-degree felony. Like robberies, all burglary charges in Connecticut are felonies and carry serious penalties. It is important to consult with an experienced burglary defense lawyer to understand how the law applies to you.

Home Invasion

Home invasion is the act of unlawfully entering a building with the intent to commit a crime while:

  • Committing or attempting to commit a felony against someone in the dwelling
  • Being armed with explosives, a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument

Home invasion is a Class A felony punishable by a minimum of 10 years in prison and fines up to $20,000. We are well-versed in burglary defense strategies, including arguing the building was abandoned or that the defendant lacked criminal intent. We will carefully analyze the facts of your case to determine the most effective defense strategy to employ on your behalf.
