Home Invasion in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Degree in Michigan
In order to be convicted of home invasion rather than a lesser offense like larceny, it must be proven that the defendant both broke and entered a home. Breaking does not have to involve actual property damage, and could simply mean opening a window or door without permission.
There are three degrees of home invasion in Clinton, which can all lead to felony conviction and serious penalties. First degree cases involve cases where breaking and entering occurs with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault while armed with a deadly weapon can lead to first degree conviction. If another person is lawfully present in the dwelling, first degree charges can result as well.
Second degree home inaction involves breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault in the dwelling. A third degree charge results when a person breaks and enters with intent to commit a misdemeanor.
No matter what charge you are facing, our Clinton home invasion defense attorneys are prepared to fight with you as you combat conviction and harsh criminal penalties. Contact our firm now for a free initial consultation.
Criminal Penalties for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Degree Home Invasion
If you are convicted of home invasion, the Michigan Penal Code states that you can face a felony record, along with different penalties depending on the degree of the home invasion charge you are facing. The maximum penalties for home invasion as outlined in Clinton law are as follows:
- 1st Degree Home Invasion: Up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
- 2nd Degree Home Invasion: Up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $3,000.
- 3rd Degree Home Invasion: Up to 5 years behind bars and a fine of up to $2,000.
In addition, any other offense you allegedly commit while inside the house can lead to penalties stacked on top of what you are already facing, and anyone with a prior criminal conviction on record could see these maximums enhanced significantly. Contact Grabel & Associates now and fight back against possibly life-altering punishment.
