How is burglary defined under UK law?
Burglary can be committed in a number of ways. The law looks at burglary with the view of identifying the intention and dishonesty of the crime, together with proof that trespassing took place.
Are certain types of burglary more serious?
It is worth noting that the court generally deems burglary of a residential property as more serious than that of commercial property, due to the intrusion into a person’s private life and home.Burglary is classified as an ‘either way offence’, which means that depending on the severity of the individual case, the magistrates have to decide whether they are able to deal with it or refer it to the Crown Court.
How is burglary proved in court?
To be convicted, it must be shown that the offender entered an area or property without permission, with the clear intention of stealing or causing damage, or to commit GBH, or rape. Burglary can also be committed when someone enters a property as a trespasser and whilst in that property decides that they will take something.
