As a point of reference, burglary can best be defined as a crime that involves the unauthorized, or illegal entry into a home, an apartment, a building, a place of worship, or a community dwelling for the elderly. Considering our aging population, we can expect to see an increase in community dwellings.
Forcible Entry and Assault
Unfortunately, the crime of burglary may also involve forcible entry. The other term you may not be familiar with is simple assault. According to a report from the U.S. Department of Justice Statistics, the illegal entry may include the breaking of a small or large window. Illegal entry also includes the slashing of a screen in order to enter the home or building. Illegal entry may also take place by entering through an unlocked front door. or even by taking advantage of an open patio or screen door.
It is very important to realize that you simply can’t be too careful, especially in today’s environment. This is an important lesson about personal and home security that should also be gently taught to children as well as elderly family members.
Bear in mind that unauthorized entry takes place for the express purpose of committing a crime within the premises. Typically, but not always, the crime involves theft. It’s also very possible that the crime may involve assault.
Since there are variables in each case, the final outcome depends on the jurisdiction, circumstances, and the extent of the crime. As a result of the final determination, the crime may either be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony.
