Breaking and entering is considered a serious offence in Saskatchewan. It is taken very seriously by the courts and law enforcement, so you need to contact a criminal defence lawyer immediately if you have been charged with breaking and entering. We know what it takes to defend against these charges, and we will do everything we can to ensure your rights are protected.
According to the Criminal Code, breaking and entering is described as the act of entering a residence or structure without permission or with the intent of stealing property or goods or committing another offence. This includes any attempt to break in or damage done during an attempted break-in into a home, building, vehicle or structure, or any attempt to break out of one. The consequences could be severe if you have been charged with breaking and entering. Depending on the circumstances of the break and enter, such as if another offence was committed, like assault or murder, you could face up to life in prison.
