Skilled Birmingham Possession of Burglary in the Third Degree Defense Attorney Taking a Practical and Effective Approach to Defending Against Burglary Crimes

The Birmingham Burglary Defense Attorney at The Stoves Law Firm, P.C., offers a practical and effective approach to defending against burglary crimes. With over 25 years of experience in criminal defense, our team is well-versed in the specifics of Alabama’s burglary laws, including Burglary in the Third Degree, as defined under Code of Alabama (1975) § 13A-7-7. Burglary in the Third Degree is a Class C felony, carrying with it the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence and hefty fines.

The crime of Burglary in the Third Degree consists of the following key elements:

  • Knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully in a building with the intent to commit a crime therein.
  • The building in question is not a home.

What are the Best Defenses to Burglary Cases?

Defending against a burglary charge requires a clear understanding of the details of the case and the ability to identify legal defenses. The Stoves Law Firm, with its vast 25 years of experience in criminal defense, can explore various strategies to protect your rights.

One common defense is to challenge the element of intent. If it can be shown that the defendant did not intend to commit a crime when entering the building, the charges might be reduced or dismissed.

Another potential defense is to question the lawfulness of the entry. If the defendant had permission to enter the building, or even if they believed they had permission, the defendant may not be guilty of burglary at all.

The Stoves Law Firm also examines the procedures followed by law enforcement during the investigation. Any violation of your constitutional rights, such as an unlawful search or seizure, could result in the evidence being suppressed.

Rest assured, The Stoves Law Firm combs through every piece of evidence available. We will find any and every possible angle to attack your case from and vigorously protect your civil rights from the prosecution and the police. The state has a very high bar to reach, and we will do everything in our power to prevent them from reaching it by providing reasonable doubt for a reasonable price.
