Two individuals in Pennsylvania were recently charged with burglary. The alleged burglary is said to have taken place during the invasion of a home that occurred back in 2014. Police said several weapons were stolen from the house at that time.
Authorities determined that a replica revolver and nine firearms had been pilfered from a home that was burglarized in September of 2014. Police in July of 2015 identified two suspects in connection with the incident. The two individuals include a 23-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman.
The two individuals were arrested on warrants that had been issued by a district court. The pair face several charges, including criminally conspiring to commit the crime of burglary, felony counts of burglary, receiving property that had been stolen and criminally conspiring to receive stole property. Both of the individuals were jailed, with the man being held on a bail of $75,000 and the woman being held on a bail of $50,000.
The several criminal charges that these two individuals face have to be proved beyond a reasonable doubt in a criminal court; otherwise, no conviction can be secured against them. The criminal defense’s chief area of concentration may be on scrutinizing the evidence that the prosecution intends to furnish at trial to prove the defendants’ guilt. The criminal defense will likely also focus on ensuring that the defendants’ legal rights are not violated at any point during the criminal proceeding. People facing burglary charges in Pennsylvania have the same legal protections guaranteed to people facing other types of charges in the state.
