Defenses Against Burglary Charges

Mounting a successful defense against burglary charges requires an in-depth case analysis. Our experienced Dutchess County burglary lawyers employ a variety of defense strategies to protect your rights:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that there was no intent to commit a crime within the premises can weaken the prosecution's case.
  • False Accusations: Unraveling the possibility of false accusations is crucial, as mistaken identity or ulterior motives may be at play.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence and ensuring it meets the legal standards required for a conviction is a pivotal aspect of our defense strategy.
  • Fourth Amendment Violations: Examining whether law enforcement conducted a lawful search and seizure is crucial, as evidence obtained through unconstitutional means may be deemed inadmissible.
  • Alibi: Establishing a strong alibi can undermine the prosecution's timeline of events and cast doubt on the charges.
