Car Burglary

Burglary is a term that’s often tossed around. But what does it mean.

By law, in New Hampshire, burglary simply going into a dwelling _ or vehicle _ with the intent of taking something that isn’t yours. It doesn’t mean you have to be a career burglar. Anyone can be charged with burglary and people from all walks of life are charged with the crime every day.

A car burglary doesn’t mean stealing vehicles. It simply means that someone opened a car or vehicle that doesn’t belong to them and took something from inside. Or they may have simply tried to open the car door with the intent of taking something from inside but were scared away by an alarm or someone watching them from a nearby location.

If you are facing a car burglary charge, the most important thing you can do is call criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone.

Defending Your Car Burglary Charge

At The Anzalone Law Firm in Nashua, New Hampshire, our primary goal is to defend your rights as prescribe by the state’s statutes, Section 635:1.

The state considers it a burglary any time someone enters a structure, including a motor vehicle, with the “purpose to commit a crime therein.”

There are multiple penalties for these crimes.

It’s considered a Class B felony unless the crime happens at night or if someone is injured during the commission of the crime. Then it becomes a Class A felony.

By law, the state considers a structure or dwelling to be a home, vehicle, boat or anywhere that is adapted for overnight accommodations of people. You could face jail time, so be prepared to take your attorney’s legal advice. Prosecutors and judges take a hard line on criminal activity. But the judge will also consider the factors that led to your arrest.

Michael Anzalone will listen to your side of the story after getting arrest documents that outline the reason police arrested you. Don’t worry about telling him what happened. He is not here to judge your actions. His job is to get the best possible outcome when your case goes before a judge or a jury.

This is why you’ll want to have a criminal lawyer by your side when you talk to police. Your attorney can also ask the judge to let you out on bail until your case goes to trial. If that happens, you’ll have to make sure you don’t break any laws and return to court for all hearings.

If you don’t understand someone, your attorney will explain the legal process in a way you can understand.

At The Anzalone Law Firm, we make you and your case our number one priority.

So, whether you and your friends were simply bored and walking through the neighborhood, checking to see if cars were locked, or you targeted cars where you knew wallets and other valuables were inside, Michael Anzalone can help.
