Home Invasion Attorneys in Michigan
With Offices Conveniently Located in Royal Oak
Home invasion is a serious crime in Michigan and the possibility of a prison sentence is very high if convicted. It is important that you hire a skilled criminal defense lawyer in Michigan immediately.
Michigan breaks the crime of home invasion into three different degrees as follows:
First-Degree Home Invasion
This specific home invasion offense is the most serious. The prosecutor must prove that you broke and entered into a home of another without permission with the intent to commit an assault, larceny, or a felony once inside. You can also be charged with first-degree home invasion if, at any time during the entry or exit, another person is lawfully present in the home or dwelling or you are armed with a deadly weapon.
First-degree home invasion is a 20-year felony with fines up to $5,000.
Second-Degree Home Invasion
Second-degree home invasion is committed when a person breaks and enters a home or dwelling with the intent to commit, or actually does commit, an assault, larceny, or a felony. Home invasion in the second degree is a 15-year felony and carries fines up to $3,000.00.
To distinguish second-degree from first-degree home invasion, it is important to remember that a second-degree charge does not require or involve the use of a deadly weapon.
Third-Degree Home Invasion
Third-degree home invasion is committed when a person breaks and enters a home or dwelling with the intent to commit, or actually does commit, a misdemeanor once inside. Home invasion in the third degree is a 5-year felony and carries fines up to $2,000.00.
