When you were arrested by law enforcement, you may have been shocked to discover that you were being charged with burglary. When people think about burglary, they typically think about a person who breaks into a private home at night to steal property. But burglary is defined by Idaho law in a much more expansive nature. The Idaho criminal code states:
Every person who enters any house, room, apartment, tenement, shop, warehouse, store, mill, barn, stable, outhouse, or other building, tent, vessel, vehicle, trailer, airplane or railroad car, with intent to commit any theft or any felony, is guilty of burglary.
Idaho Statute 18-1401.
