Burglary in Colorado

Burglary is taken very seriously in Colorado in that a conviction can lead to a long, mandatory prison sentence, even on your first offense.

Essentially, burglary in the first degree is knowingly and unlawfully entering an occupied structure with the intent to commit a crime against a person. You don't even have to commit a crime while inside, but just have the intent to commit a crime.

There are many defenses that can help you avoid conviction. As examples, you can claim you were allowed in the structure or that you had no intent to commit a crime and were just trespassing.

An experienced burglary lawyer can attempt to avoid your mandatory prison sentence by defending your case and/or reaching a plea agreement with the District Attorney that eliminates the mandatory prison sentence.
