DeMent Askew Johnson & Marshall offers experienced legal representation for individuals facing breaking and entering (B&E) and burglary charges in North Carolina. With offices in Raleigh and Morehead City, our seasoned criminal defense attorneys understand the complexities of these charges and are committed to providing a robust defense for our clients.

Understanding Breaking and Entering and Burglary Charges

Breaking and Entering (B&E): Defined as unauthorized forced entry into someone else's property, breaking and entering can result in varying degrees of legal consequences depending on the specifics of the incident:

  • Class 1 Misdemeanor: For breaking and entering any building.
  • Class H Felony: When the entry is with the intent of theft, injury, or other criminal activities.

Burglary Charges: Burglary involves the unlawful entry into a dwelling with intent to commit theft or harm and is categorized based on the occupancy of the dwelling at the time of the offense:

  • First Degree (Class D Felony): If the dwelling is occupied.
  • Second Degree (Class G Felony): If the dwelling is unoccupied.
  • Habitual Offender (Class E Felony): For individuals with previous B&E convictions.

The Importance of Experienced Legal Representation

Facing charges of breaking and entering or burglary can have profound and lasting implications on your life. These charges are distinct from trespassing and often accompany other related offenses, making the legal landscape particularly challenging to navigate. Our attorneys are adept at negotiating with prosecutors and, when possible, securing favorable plea deals based on the circumstances of your case.
