1: the act of breaking and entering an inhabited structure (as a house) esp. at night with intent to commit a felony (as murder or larceny) also
2: the act of entering or remaining unlawfully (as after closing to the public) in a building with intent to commit a crime (as a felony) The crime of burglary was originally defined under the common law to protect people, since there were other laws (as those defining larceny and trespass) that protected property. State laws have broadened the common-law crime. Entering at night is often no longer required and may be considered an aggravating factor. The building may be something other than a dwelling, such as a store or pharmacy. Some states (as Louisiana) have included vehicles under their burglary statute. There are degrees of burglary, and some of the usual aggravating factors are the presence of people and use of a deadly weapon.

In some situations, it may be difficult for the prosecution to pursue or prove a burglary case. This is due to the fact that the intent of the defendant is a key part of the charges. To be convicted of committing some type of burglary, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally made the attempt to or actually stole. If a burglary case goes to court, there is often no recovery of losses for the plaintiff because a judgment is ordered. The judgment can often include jail time, making recovery of losses very difficult. Settling out of court is the most beneficial option for both parties; the plaintiff has a better chance of recovering losses and the accused can avoid serving time in jail or prison.
