Man faces felonies after being accused of burglary

Whether one already has a criminal record or has been arrested for the first time, facing burglary charges can be frightening and upsetting. Felonies in New Hampshire, if they result in convictions, carry heavy penalties and lifelong consequences. Having a burglary conviction in one's past may eliminate many opportunities for employment, education and personal circumstances. One man may be in need of criminal defense following a burglary of which he is accused.

With only a vague description of clothing, a witness called police to report that a man walked out of a neighbor's house dragging a suitcase loaded with items. A car stopped to pick up the man, and the neighbor was able to copy the license number. Shortly after police responded, the neighbor came home and reported items missing from his house. Police traced the license plate to a man with a criminal record listing multiple burglary charges.

When New Hampshire police interviewed the man, they learned that he had been on his way to a job interview when a friend contacted him asking for a ride. When the man picked up his friend, the friend was allegedly lugging a suitcase and numerous other items matching the items the neighbor had reported missing from his house. Some weeks later, police received word that the friend had allegedly pawned some of those items, and the neighbor confirmed that the items were his property.

The man is facing felony burglary charges. When circumstantial evidence begins to pile up, a person may feel like he or she has no hope. It is important for people who are accused of felonies to have an advocate who will show them respect and defend their rights. Having a dedicated attorney by one's side can make all the difference.
