Defense for Criminal Theft Charges

What is the crime of burglary? The definition of burglary and robbery are often confused when it comes to crimes of theft. Many people use the terms interchangeably, while there is actually a large difference between the criminal acts of burglary and robbery.

The following are the definitions for burglary and robbery, including the key differences:

  • Burglary -is the act of breaking and entering into another building usually with the intention of committing an offense. This offense can include a crime of theft, such as stealing an object of any value. The act of breaking into a building or home can be either by force, by fraud or by threats, while the term entering refers to the physical entry of the person or the insertion of an instrument used to remove property. In some cases, "breaking" without "entering" or "entering" without "breaking" cannot be considered common law burglary. In cases of burglary, though, a person can be accused of this crime even if the act of theft or the intentional crime was not carried out in the end.
  • Robbery -on the other hand, is the criminal act of attempting to take something of value by force or threats of violence. This offense includes taking something, or trying to do so, with the intention of never returning the item to the owner. This can include armed robbery and aggravated robbery, depending on the type of force, weapon or threat used in the act.
