Burglary

An individual commits burglary when they enter a building with intentions to commit a crime within. A prosecutor must produce evidence on the following points, and convince a jury beyond a reasonable doubt on each of them, to show that a burglary occurred.

The law prohibits anyone from entering into any structure, and not just a home. They include stores, school buildings, houseboats, trailer homes, and even tents or campsites. Some states also differentiate between burglary of a commercial space and residential burglary, punishing residential burglary more harshly. For residential burglary, the building must be a home, apartment, or some type of building in which a person lives. Any type of forced entry, no matter how minimal, is enough to satisfy this requirement.
