Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Can you give more details as to how he got arrested to put these charges in context?

As far as I know he was with a friend who had bolt cutters in his pocket. A commercial area at midnight.If his account is accurate,the sheriff fell upon them before anything happened. He,himself had no tools of any kind but was charged anyway. I,m curious how you get a burglary charge without without any stolen goods,no B&E. How does that work?

How does one conspire to commit a crime without trespass or some type of physical intent?
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 7 months ago

A person in a conspiracy aids in the commission of a crime and can be punished just like the person who actually committed the crime, even though he himself neither trespassed nor had the tools. For example, if it was his job to be the lookout for the police or to be the driver of the getaway card, he could be charged under a conspiracy theory with what his friend was charged with.

Note that it was an attempted burglary, so the B&E never came to pass. However, the officer apparently feels he had probable cause to believe that the reason they were at a commercial location after midnight with bolt cutters was to commit a crime. Whether that will be good enough to convict either of them is another story and would depend on what would come out at trial if they want to fight this case and whether a jury determines that this was their actual intent at that time and place.
