Robbery, Burglary & Theft
Robbery is the taking, or attempt to take, the property of another person by force or threat of force.
Burglary is the unauthorized entry into another’s home or business with the intent to commit a crime inside the premises. Often, the intended crime is theft, the unlawful taking of another individual’s personal property.
Many times, Robbery and Burglary cases hinge on identifications made by civilian witnesses. The accuracy of such identification evidence has been called into question on countless occasions, leading to court opinions and expert reports documenting the flaws. The limits of human perception and the identification procedures utilized by law enforcement can lead to false identifications being made by witnesses both in and out of court. Familiarity with these issues is the key to preparing an effective defense strategy in your case.
