Hartford Burglary Attorneys

Connecticut Robbery Lawyers

Woolf Law Firm, LLC, Attorneys at Law, defend a variety of theft crimes, including burglary, robbery, and larceny offenses on both state and federal levels.

In Connecticut, someone can be charged with burglary when there is attempted or actual breaking and entering of premises such as a house, retail store, restaurant, or gas station. The severity of the fine and possible jail time increases as the value of the items stolen increases.

Burglary or Robbery with Weapons

Theft crimes can also be considered felony offenses. Robbery (armed or otherwise) is a felony where something is intentionally taken by force and against the will of the person in possession of the stolen item(s).

In order to possess a gun (pistols, guns, revolvers, etc.) in Connecticut one must first obtain a permit from their local police department and in most instances the State Police. Carrying a pistol-revolver without a permit carries a minimum mandatory one (1) year jail sentence.

If you have a prior felony conviction, carrying a pistol, revolver, etc. is prohibited and carries a lengthy prison sentence.

There are limited exceptions to possessing a pistol/revolver, etc. without a permit (i.e. in one’s “home” or “place of work”). These exceptions are extremely limited and one ought to consult with an Attorney prior to obtaining a gun without a permit. Certain assault weapons are prohibited by Connecticut law, with few limited exceptions requiring special permits.
