Burglary and robbery are both types of theft, but legally they mean different things and can be charged in multiple different ways. If you have been accused of burglary or robbery, you need to understand the charges against you and what you can do to protect yourself from serious criminal penalties.
I am attorney Justin Schiks, a Woodbury Burglary Lawyer defending people charged with burglary or robbery in the St. Paul-Minneapolis area and throughout Minnesota.

Burglary and robbery are serious charges with penalties of up to 20 years in prison and $35,000 in fines or both.
Proper identification of suspects is key to every robbery or burglary case. If the police did not apprehend the suspect in the act of robbery or inside of a burglarized building, they often have difficulty tying a suspect to the criminal act.
Suspicion is not enough for conviction. The prosecution needs hard, physical evidence to convict a defendant.ATTORNEY JUSTIN SCHIKS
I have been successful in persuading juries that fingerprints and DNA evidence are not as reliable as is commonly believed. Even if DNA testing is considered 95 percent accurate, there are still thousands of people whose DNA could match the profile in question.
