Burglary is defined under PC §458-464, which states that every person who enters any house, room, apartment, shop, warehouse, store, barn, stable, tent, vessel, or other building, railroad car, inhabited camper, vehicle (when the doors are locked), with the intent to commit grand theft or petit larceny or any felony is guilty of burglary.
Whenever a burglary involves an inhabited house, vessel, floating home, or the inhabited portion of any other building is guilty of burglary in the first degree.
In many burglary cases the suspect had no intention of "stealing" something or they were merely borrowing an item or retrieving something that belonged to them. Unfortunately, the burden of proof will be on your defense attorney to prove that you did not intend to steal anything or commit any other felony.
Burglary is prosecuted harshly in California and if you want to stay out of jail or prison, you are going to need a hard-hitting Oakland criminal defense lawyer such as Attorney Castillo fighting in your corner to get your charges reduced if not dismissed altogether.
