Defense Lawyer for Burglary Charges
In Utah, burglary occurs when someone enters a building or remains in a building with the intent to commit a theft (or other felony and certain sex crimes such as voyeurism). It does not matter what the value of the object of the burglary is or was for purposes of the nature of the punishment. Thus, if the burglary occurred in a building other than a person’s dwelling it is a third degree felony. If the burglary occurred in someone’s house or apartment it automatically becomes a second degree felony.
