Chicago Home Invasion Attorneys

Criminal Defense Lawyers Serving Clients in Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Throughout the Chicago Area

Every person has the right to feel safe and secure in their house. The crime of home invasion violates this right at its most basic level, and, as such, is the most serious property crime of which an individual can be accused. If you are facing charges related to a home invasion, the team at Luisi Legal Group is ready to assist you in protecting your rights and your future.

Residential Burglary and Home Invasion Defense

The State of Illinois is one of just a few jurisdictions that separates the offense of home invasion from that of residential burglary. Residential burglary refers to the unlawful entering or remaining in the home of another person with intent to commit a theft or other felony. By contrast, home invasion is similar, but involves entry into a home that the perpetrator knows or believes to be currently occupied and does the following:

Home invasion is a Class X felony, and a conviction carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 6 to 30 years. Probation is not an option following a home invasion conviction.

In certain situations, you can be charged with home invasion for unlawfully entering your own home. For example, if you and your former spouse own a home together, but you have been ordered to stay away from the home in a divorce decree, order of protection, or other court directive, violation of the court's instructions could result in home invasion charges depending on the nature of the offense.
