Tulsa Oklahoma Burglary Defense Lawyer

Burglary is the crime of entering a business, home, automobile, or other property with the intent to commit a crime. Under Oklahoma criminal law, felony burglary is classified as either first-degree burglary or second-degree burglary. First degree burglary is defined as breaking and entering into the occupied home of another with the intent to commit a crime. Second-degree burglary is defined as breaking and entering into a building, car, automobile, truck, or other structure in which property is kept, with the intent to steal or commit any felony. Misdemeanor burglary, also known as breaking and entering, is defined as entering the premises or dwelling of another without permission from the owner or occupant.
