According to CBS 13 News, a couple has been arrested after breaking and entering properties. While thefts and burglaries happen daily in Sacramento County, this string of break-ins raised major concerns. The accused couple had been charged with targeting homes that had their power shut off due to public safety reasons. Essentially, they were preying on the weakness of homeowners that were put into an awkward position.

Theft and Burglary Crimes and Penalties in the State of California
Back in 2018, the Los Angeles Times published a story outlining why they believed theft and burglary crimes had risen in our state. The article goes on to state that overcrowded prisons and cuts in law enforcement funding had reduced the penalties for theft and burglary related charges. However, as crime rose throughout 2018 local law enforcement and Sacramento County prosecutors cracked back down on punishments. By increasing the consequences of criminal activities, law enforcement agencies hope to send a message to criminals that Sacramento won’t tolerate these types of activities.
Steve Whitworth has been fighting for the accused for over 20 years. Our law firm knows that Sacramento County is NOT the place you want to get arrested for a crime.

So just imagine how law enforcement is going to treat theft and burglary crimes and penalties in the state of California. What’s the point we are trying to make? Simple, allow our award-winning Burglary Attorneys in Sacramento to provide you with a free consultation.
