Break and Enter NSW

 

There are a number of break and enter offences outlined in Part 4 of the Crimes Act 1900. The offences are as follows:

  • Breaking out of a dwelling house after committing an indictable offence (section 109, maximum penalty 14 years). 
  • Entering a dwelling house with the intention to commit an indictable offence (section 109, maximum penalty 14 years)
  • Entering a dwelling house with the intention of committing a serious indictable offence (section 111)
  • Breaking, entering and committing a serious indictable offence (section 112)
  • Breaking and entering with the intention of committing a serious indictable offence (section 113)
  • Being armed with an intention to commit an indictable offence (section 114)

 

The offences under sections 109, 111, 112 and 113 may be committed in circumstances of aggravation, rendering an accused potentially liable for a higher penalty.  

The elements of these offences vary. Our lawyers will be able to step through them with you during your appointment. 

 

What is a serious indictable offence

The Crimes Act defines the term serious indictable offence as an indictable offence which is punishable by imprisonment for 5 years or more. 

The judge will consider the seriousness of the offence during sentencing.  

 

How can I defend myself?

James Janke has represented me in 2 very different matters. As a result of his representations and advocacy, one issue was withdrawn and the other received the best result possible. In relation to the client, James is a clear communicator, explains all possible outcomes clearly and frankly. In court, James is a talented and respected advocate. I highly recommend Hamilton Janke Lawyers at times of great stress and uncertainty.

Fantastic guys. Super professional, dedicated, understanding and tenacious. Nothing was a problem and they made me feel incredibly comfortable. They both made a hugely stressful situation as easy as it could be. Helped me enormously and achieved a great result. I cannot recommend them enough. Don't bother with anyone else - Drew and James should be the first and only stop if you require representation. Thank you both so much.
