By entering a person’s home without the owner’s permission with the intent to commit a crime inside, such as theft, you are committing the crime of home invasion. In order to prove your guilt of such a crime, a prosecutor must show that you entered a home with the intent to commit a crime. Whether or not you actually committed the crime doesn’t matter – it’s all about your intention.
Based on the circumstances surrounding your case, you could face charges that range from a Class 3 criminal trespass misdemeanor to first-degree burglary. There are many different factors that impact the prosecutor’s decision on which charges to file against you, including what property you entered, how long you were there and what took place while you were on the property.
Penalties for such crimes can include minimum jail time of 30 days for a class 3 misdemeanor and up to 12 years for first-degree burglary. In addition to time in jail, there may be fines imposed that reach as high as $150,000.
