Potential penalties and defenses for burglary charges in Colorado

Unlawfully entering someone’s home or business without permission can easily result in burglary charges (even if you didn’t steal anything), and that can end up with significant repercussions for your life. 

If you are charged with burglary in Colorado, understanding the potential penalties and defenses is a must. 

Potential penalties for Colorado burglary charges

In Colorado, burglary is divided into degrees. First-degree is the most serious charge you can receive and comes with the heaviest penalties if convicted of the crime. 

This doesn’t mean the other charges are less serious, just that the penalties aren’t quite as severe. If you are charged with any type of burglary in Colorado, building a strong defense is a must to protect your rights and freedom. All burglary charges come with significant fines and potential prison time. 

Potential defenses to burglary charges in Colorado

In criminal cases, the prosecution has the burden of proving that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. While this is true, it’s important to consider the unique circumstance of your case as you build your defense. 

Did you enter the building because you were looking for shelter in an emergency? That can be a valid defense. Voluntary intoxication isn’t generally considered a valid defense, but involuntary intoxication (such as if your drink was drugged when you were out) can be. Similarly, you may have a valid defense if you were suffering from a mental disorder that affected your ability to reason. 

Protecting your rights when facing criminal burglary charges

Every situation is unique, so knowing your rights and potential defenses can be beneficial if you face criminal burglary charges in Colorado.
