Understanding the Differences Between Theft, Burglary and Robbery
Theft involves virtually any situation in which an individual seizes any property of value that belongs to another party, whether it is money, movable property or even intellectual property such as trade secrets. Theft falls into the following two basic categories:
Robbery: Individuals who inflict or threaten to inflict bodily injury face robbery charges.
Burglary: These charges apply to individuals who enter an occupied non-public structure with the intent to commit a crime.
But these high-level definitions do not begin to describe the complexity of theft-related charges or the defenses available to protect the rights of those charged with robbery or burglary under Pennsylvania law. Each experienced theft defense attorney at our firm in Beaver County knows the details of the law — and how to the prosecution develops its case.
How Our Beaver County Theft Defense Attorneys Can Help
Each theft defense lawyer from our firm has extensive knowledge of the various allowable defenses. For example, Pennsylvania law considers the fact that an abandoned building is not occupied a valid defense against burglary charges. Additionally, our lawyers have the understanding of the prosecution needed to effectively negotiate for reduced or dropped charges based on factors such as the defendant’s clean prior history.
We accompany you through every phase of the criminal process to protect your rights during questioning and during all courtroom sessions. And we conduct thorough investigations to help develop an effective defense on your behalf.
