Find a Utah Burglary Attorney at SLF
Burglary in Utah is a very defined crime. A person commits a burglary when he enters or remains in a building unlawfully with the intent to commit a felony, an assault on a person, a theft, or a variety of sexual crimes including lewdness, sexual battery, lewdness with a child, and voyeurism against a child. A burglary is a third degree felony if it took place in a building that is not a dwelling (where someone lives) and if it took place in a dwelling it is a second degree felony.
One of the main reasons why a burglary tends to be so much more serious than other crimes is because a burglary is a crime unto itself and then the underlying crime of the burglary (felony, assault, theft, and the sexual crimes listed above) are separate offenses. Thus, anytime you face burglary charges you are likely facing at least one other serious charge, which is why you need a Utah burglary attorney from Salcido Law Firm on your side.
English common law has included burglary as a crime for hundreds of years because a man’s house is his castle. Common law has sought to protect an individual’s home and so has attributed much harsher offenses to crimes involving the violation of one’s property rights over his home. Utah has latched on to this common law rule but has also codified it to make it a statutory offense. A Utah burglary attorney from SLF will fight hard to protect your rights when the state brings these types of charges against you.
