In Texas, Burglary is a felony. A person is charged with burglary any time they enter a habitation or building or any portion of one, when it is not then open to the public, with the intent to commit a felony, theft, or assault.
Additionally, similar charges can be brought in relation to a vehicle or coin operated machine.
If you have been charged with Burglary you may also be charged with the additional felony(ies), theft, or assault that the state believes you intended to commit.
