Charges of theft and burglary are aggressively prosecuted crimes in Michigan.  The severity of the punishment is tough according to Michigan law.  A defendant is guilty of theft or burglary if he or she:

  • Hides in a building that is not open to the pubic and has the intent to commit a crime like theft or assault.
  • Is found in a building or on the premises when they were told that entrance was not allowed.
  • Goes into a building which is closed to the public with the intent to engage in assault or theft.

A defendant does not have to use force to enter into a building in order to be charged with burglary. The law does not demand that forced entry be proven in order to convict someone of burglary. If you walk into a garage that has an open door and take the car out for a drive, even if you return the car, you can be charged with burglary.
