Is my burglary case considered weak based on circumstantial evidence? 3 Answers as of July 26, 2012

I was the driver for an escort service and I took 2 girls to a house at the request of the agency. I sat in the driveway while the two girls went inside the home with the client. Two hours later the girls returned with misc merchandise in hand because the client agreed to that exchange because he had no money. Come to find out the merchandise given away was his parents stuff. The client is 23 years old. His parents called the police two days later and said the items were stolen out of the house and not given away. One of the girls stated that I went in the house with her even though the client claimed he never seen me. We were all charged with BURGLARY. The only evidence is the girl who stated I went in the house with her. She is a known drug user. They found the "stolen" purses in my house because the girl lives there also and even told police those items were hers. I want to know will these charges stick? I havent talked to the police at all in this matter. I need a good lawyer :)

You have been charged with burglary under the legal theory that you were a PARTY TO A CRIME. The only way you can be convicted is if the state proves to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt is that YOU KNEW that the co-defendants were going inside the house to commit either a felony or a theft. It sounds like a weak case, but if one of the co-defendants changes her mind and turns on you saying that you knew what they were going to do, then the case against you would strengthen.

I would suggest that you meet with an attorney as soon as possible. Depending on the facts of each case, anytime one is charged with criminal charges the case could be dismissed or the defendant could get convicted or found not guilty.
