Defense Against Charges Of Robbery And Burglary
Both robbery and burglary are specific intent crimes that involve property. Both may seem similar, but they are in fact different crimes that involve different circumstances.
The difference between robbery and burglary is as follows:
- In robbery, there is an element of violence such as using a weapon to coerce a victim to give up their property.
- In burglary, there is an attempt to break into a building with the intent to commit a crime such as theft.
These are serious crimes designated as felonies in which the convicted can be sent to prison for many years. If you have been charged with one of these crimes, the effects can be disastrous. A skilled lawyer from the Kyle Law Firm can help reduce your charges, so you can keep your life on track. The verdicts we’ve earned in such matters have earned us a reputation for success.

Evidence In Robbery And Burglary Cases
Many times, robbery and burglary cases are prosecuted with little to no direct evidence linking the accused perpetrator to the crime. Our team knows how to exploit weak evidence to our clients’ advantage.
Both robbery and burglary are considered Class A misdemeanors to felonies with aggravating circumstances such as if there is a weapon involved or violence used. Often in these cases, witnesses and other evidence, such as DNA or physical evidence left behind at the scene, are imperative in obtaining convictions of those who are accused. But such evidence is hard to procure.
In fact, circumstantial evidence may be the only evidence a prosecutor has in such a case. At Kyle Law Firm, we know the ins and outs of these cases and how we can help you get your charges lifted.
