Carteret County Burglary Lawyers

Beaufort Attorneys Serving Eastern North Carolina

While burglary is technically a theft crime, you can be convicted even if no actual theft occurred. In many cases, all that needs to be proven is intent. According to the North Carolina General Statutes §14-51, first-degree burglary is defined as the entering into a dwelling house when inhabited or occupied. If the dwelling is empty, it may be charged as a second-degree burglary.

The penalties associated with this type of crime are serious and can have a long-lasting impact on your life. If you are convicted of a first-degree burglary, you will be punished as a Class D felon.
