Hire a Skilled Defense Attorney if You Are Charged with an Upstate Burglary Offense
In South Carolina, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony for burglary or possession of stolen goods. The type of charge you face will depend on your criminal history and the value of the property involved in your case. When you contact the Law Office of Lauren Taylor, our first priority is finding a way to keep you from being charged with a felony. Then we review your case to determine the best way to defend you against the charges.
The prosecutor must prove the charges “beyond a reasonable doubt,” so winning a burglary case is not impossible. We may be able to identify weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case, which could exonerate you of the charges or convince the prosecutor to drop a felony charge. If you are charged in connection with damage that occurred at a large house party, we will assess the credibility of the prosecutor’s witnesses and develop a defense based on the statements made by people who attended the party.
It may be possible to plead to a lesser offense, such as pleading to unlawful entry instead of a more serious burglary charge. We have extensive experience defending people against property crimes, so contact us if you have been charged with any of the following:
• Burglary of commercial and residential buildings
• Breaking and entering
• Unlawful entry
• Destruction of property
• Possession of stolen property
• Auto theft
• Burglary of public buildings
• Receiving or selling stolen property.
