Michigan Criminal Law: Theft/Larceny Crimes; Home Invasion

Home Invasion charges combine elements of breaking and entering into a building/structure with various other elements of other charges; but more specifically, the alleged act must involve a residential structure. Because an alleged residence is involved, these types of charges typically carry more serious potential sanctions for the same alleged behavior than breaking and entering into non-residential and commercial structures.

Anyone charged, of course, is presumed innocent. The prosecutor would need to prove the elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt if the matter proceeded to trial. Simply because a person is charged does not mean that they will be convicted.
If you need specific legal advice for your particular circumstances, we encourage you to privately consult with a lawyer. Circumstances may vary significantly.
If you are charged with an offense and cannot afford to pay for your own defense, the court may appoint you an attorney payable at the public’s expense. You have a right to counsel.
