This crime involves unlawfully entering or remaining in a building or dwelling with the intention of committing:

  • A felony offense
  • Theft
  • Assault

Even if the intended crime was not carried out, a defendant may still face burglary charges. If the crime was committed, the defendant may face burglary charges as well as charges of theft or whatever other crime he or she committed. According to the law, "entering" in the case of burglary may include any part of the body or any physical object connected with the body. A crowbar through a window, for example, may constitute "entering" a property.
