Have you been accused of felony, burglary or other related charges? Before you waive your right to an attorney consider the fact that even a minimum burglary charge in Detroit carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison if convicted. You should not face these charges alone – you need the best Detroit burglary lawyer on your side.
Michigan does not have separate statutes for burglary. Burglary is charged under other break and entry laws. These charges are further broken down into degrees of severity and what allegedly happened at the time the crime took place. This information becomes the evidence gathered from the course of their investigation that the State will use to pursue a prosecution case against you.
Are you accused of breaking into a home to commit a felony? Was someone armed and present inside at the time? You could face up to 20 years in prison with a $5,000 fine, for a first-degree home invasion such as this. Second-degree burglary felonies carry up to a 15-year prison sentence, even if you are not successful in the attempt. Third-degree felonies result in a sentencing of up to 5 years in prison and $2,000 in fines. Possession of burglary tools and the intent to use them could add up to another 10 years to any criminal prosecution against you.
