DeMelo Law is experienced in representing clients on break and enter charges. In order to be convicted of a break and enter offence, the Crown must prove that you unlawfully entered a building and committed an offence (such as theft) or had the intention to commit an offence. Even if you did not actually enter the building but you knowingly acted as a lookout or a getaway driver, you could be found guilty of breaking and entering. Breaking and entering into someone’s home (a “dwelling house”) is seen as an aggravating factor and could result in higher penalties.
