Felony Charges: Burglary and Robbery
Felony theft charges are brought against people accused of stealing an item with a value greater than $300. Felony charges are very serious because they cannot be taken off your record like a misdemeanor theft charge. They mean jail time, hefty fines and probation. Burglary and robbery are felony charges. This is why you need to get an experienced defense attorney to discuss your options with you.
- Burglary: breaking and entering into a home or building with the intent to commit a felony inside (aggravated charges include armed robbery/burglary)
- Robbery: taking property from another person by force (common examples are mugging, pick-pocketing)
