Understanding Burglary Charges and Penalties in Texas

Burglary is the charged filed if a person is accused of entering a habitation, a building, or any part of a building not open to the public without the owner's consent and with the intent to commit a felony, a theft, or assault. You can also be charged with burglary if it is alleged that you remaining concealed in a building or habitation without permission and with the same intent, or by entering a building or habitation and committing or attempting to commit a felony, theft, or an assault.

If you are convicted of burglary, you could face varying levels of penalties, depending on the type of burglary charges. Generally, burglary will be classified as a state jail felony, which is punishable by up to 2 years in state prison, and fines up to $10,000. If the burglary is committed upon a habitation, or a home, it can be classified as a second degree felony, which carries a penalty up to 20 years in prison.

With the possibilities of large fines and time in jail, you need experienced legal counsel by your side if you are facing burglary charges. Call our firm now for representation from a Fort Bend County criminal defense lawyer you can trust.
