An Experienced Madison County Attorney Protecting Your Rights
Robbery is a “person-to-person” crime that involves the taking of property using force or the threat of force. Use of a weapon or the presence of certain other factors could lead to felony charges for robbery. Burglary is charged when breaking and entering into a residence or business without the owner’s permission and with the intention to commit a crime.
A burglary offense may be charged as a home invasion if the accused entered a home or residence with reason to believe that someone was present. The alleged intruder must also have been armed upon entry or threatened the use of force against a person in the dwelling. These are serious burglary charges and it is critical to seek the representation of a skilled Illinois criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
