Tulsa Burglary Charge Defense
The statute that covers burglary is found in Okla. Stat. tit. 21§ 58-1431, which defines burglary as a person who breaks into and enters the dwelling of another, with intent to commit some crime while inside. The law says breaking the wall, an outer door, window, breaking locks or bolts or being armed with a dangerous weapon are all elements of the offense.
The difference between first and second degree burglary depends on many elements but often the statute says, “by unlocking an outer door by means of false keys or by picking the lock, or by lifting a latch or opening a window” a person could be guilty of burglary in the first degree.
