Defending Against Burglary Charges In Georgia

Under Georgia law, burglary is defined as entering a dwelling or another premises with the intent to steal property or commit another crime. A defendant does not have to actually steal property to be found guilty of burglary. It is the intent that matters, although burglary charges are often accompanied by theft allegations when a person is alleged to have stolen property.

Burglary is typically charged as a felony and carries penalties ranging from one to 20 years in prison.
