Residential Burglary Conviction Almost Always Results in Prison Time

A charge of residential burglary in Chicago or elsewhere in the state of Illinois means that you stand accused of entering another’s home either by deception or force with the intention of taking property that was owned by another. Consequently, a conviction of such a charge carries with it serious penalties and, almost inevitably, incarceration. A criminal defense lawyer may be able to help you to avoid the serious consequences involved with a conviction, however, which is why you will want to retain the best Chicago residential burglary lawyer available.

 

Because law enforcement officials and prosecutors are aware of the difficulties involved in obtaining a conviction on a single charge, it is likely that you are facing additional allegations in addition to the residential burglary charge. Whether you have also been charged with possession of burglary tools, criminal trespass, or some other associated offense, your defense lawyer will be able to sort through the charges and the applicable state laws and statutes to build a defense that will protect your civil liberties and help you receive the best possible resolution to your case.
