Burglary is the act of unlawfully entering a building or a home for the purpose of committing a crime.  Burglary is often called “breaking and entering.”  Burglary charges in Minnesota can have very serious consequences because a conviction can make it difficult to find a job, a home, or even funding for college.  In other words, a burglary conviction can make your life much more difficult.

  • First-Degree Burglary – Up to 20 years in prison and/or $35,000 in fines
