Burglary

Full Video Transcript

Burglary is the unlawful forcible entry or attempted entry of a residence. This crime usually but not always involves theft. The illegal entry may be by force such as breaking a window or kicking in a door, or maybe without force such as entering through an unlocked door or an open window. As long as the person entering has no legal right to enter the structure, a burglary has occurred. Furthermore, burglary doesn’t just apply to your home but also to other structures such as your garage or shed or even your hotel if you’re on vacation.
