This post concludes and recaps my series on the handling of burglary charges in Phoenix, Arizona. I wrote on this topic due to the fact that many defendants are confused about many aspects of such cases. My goal has been to provide information which will help people make more informed decisions when selecting a criminal defense attorney. If you find yourself facing felony charges then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent posts. Issues which I have addressed included:
- Phoenix charges and penalties for burglary
- How search and seizure impacts burglary cases
- How guns and weapons impact Arizona burglary cases
These are important topics for several reasons. First, one must understand that burglary will always be charged as a felony in our state and that there are a range of sentences associated with the offense. Second, search and seizure issues may lead to a dismissal of the charges depending on the circumstances. Finally, carrying a weapon, even if it is not used, can result in First Degree charges and a substantial prison sentence. It is also important to realize that such charges will often be “stacked” on top of an underlying offense. This means that a defendant will likely be facing multiple felony counts.
If you have been arrested for burglary then it is crucial that you contact a lawyer today. Contacting counsel sooner, rather than later, can help you to ensure that your rights are properly protected from the outset of your case. Protecting these rights may include the filing of Motions, the conducting of a full investigation, and gathering evidence such as surveillance video. I am able to assist with such matters. Contact my office today to schedule an initial consultation. I also service other Maricopa County cities such as Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Gilbert as well as assisting Pima County residents in Tucson.
