If you are facing burglary charges in Texas, you need the services of an expert criminal defense lawyer who can safeguard your rights and give you the right counsel. You can be charged with burglary if you enter a building without permission with the intention of thievery or assault. Even if the premises you enter are detached from the main building, the action will be regarded as burglary. Entering or breaking into a vehicle without effective consent of the owner is burglary and a misdemeanor. A repeat offense of this misdemeanor leads to a mandatory six-month prison sentence.
