San Jose Burglary Defense Attorney

What Are the Penalties for Burglary in California?

A burglary conviction can prove devastating, particularly if the convicted individual already possesses a criminal history. At minimum, a conviction will result in large fines. Jail time is common, with those accused of burglary often spending several months or even years behind bars. Community service hours may also be required, either as an alternative or in addition to jail time.

In addition to the official legal consequences of burglary, the felony conviction can also have a negative impact on other aspects of the charged individual’s life. Although employers are technically not supposed to discriminate based on criminal history unless the specific crime is directly related to the job, many are less than enthusiastic about hiring those with criminal records. Likewise, finding decent housing can be difficult after the prospective tenant has been accused of burglary. The best way to prevent these unfortunate consequences is to have the burglary case dismissed, or, if this is not possible, to have the severity of the case reduced to misdemeanor level.
