Knoxville Burglary Defense Attorney

Understanding Tennessee’s Burglary Laws

According to state law an individual is committing burglary when he or she enters a building or residence with the express intent of committing a felony crime, such as theft or assault, within its premises. A felony crime need not have been committed for charges to be filed.

Simply having the intent or making an attempt to commit a felony theft or assault is all that is required for an individual to find him- or herself facing burglary charges. Many people often make the mistake of using the terms interchangeably, burglary is not the same as robbery. Robbery involves the actual theft of property through violence or intimidation. The penalties for a burglary charge can include between 2-12 in prison and fines up to $5,000.
