Robbery / Burglary Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

San Antonio Burglary Defense Lawyer

Burglary is similar to the crime of Criminal Trespass in that the State of Texas must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person entered a vehicle, home or "habitation," or building without the consent of the property owners. For Burglary, however, the State must also prove that the person had the "intent" to commit another felony, theft, or assault.

Most Burglary cases do not turn on whether the person entered the premises; the deciding facts usually deal with the circumstances the State argues to prove what the intent of the person was when they unlawfully entered the building or home. You will need a skilled criminal defense attorney in San Antonio to effectively argue your side of the story to the jury.

Robbery Attorney in San Antonio

In a struggling economy, many citizens do not know where to turn for money to make ends meet. Some persons, unfortunately, turn to threatening to steal money from others, even if he or she does not intend to ever injure the person.

Texas Penal Code § 29.02 defines "Robbery":

  • (a) A person commits an offense if, in the course of committing theft as defined in Chapter 31 and with intent to obtain or maintain control of the property, he:
  • (1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another; or
  • (2) intentionally or knowingly threatens or places another in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.

So even if a person conceals a chocolate bar in their coat pocket and points it at a bank teller when demanding money, a robbery has technically been committed. A non-aggravated Robbery without a deadly weapon is a 2nd Degree Felony and carries with it a 2-20 year prison sentence.

The main objective, after attempting to drop the charges, will be to reduce the charge and the overall penalties assigned during sentencing. As a National Top 100 Trial Attorney, I have the rare and necessary courtroom abilities to truly help you in your case.
