Although burglary is often associated with theft, burglary is defined as knowingly entering or unlawfully remaining on another person’s property with the intent of committing any criminal act. In this way, burglary is related to trespassing, but with the intent of committing a crime.
There are four degrees of burglary in the state of Minnesota. In most cases, burglary will be charged as a felony. The potential penalties for burglary can be harsh and vary depending on the type of building, the intended offense, and whether the intended criminal act was actually carried out. If a deadly weapon is used in the commission of a burglary, an additional count of criminal possession of a weapon can be charged.
