Criminal defense: Iowa man accused of burglary, theft

Facing criminal charges after a previous conviction can be a complicated matter. Defendants may face an additional charge for ongoing criminal conduct if they are considered repeat offenders, which can complicate their legal matters. A solid criminal defense foundation is often essential to handling such criminal allegations.

An Iowa man is currently facing several charges, including counts for burglary, theft and ongoing criminal conduct. He was apparently out on parole when he was arrested in early Nov. 2017. Police claim that he took part in several acts of burglary during the period between Oct. 21, 2017 and Nov. 2, 2017.

He is accused of burglarizing a winery and public storage space on two different nights, allegedly taking cash from both. Police also claim that he stole thousands of dollars worth of property from another business, and also stole a vehicle worth about $12,000. Reports indicate that he may have taken part in two other burglaries, although it is not clear what items or cash may have been taken.

He was initially arrested on a separate burglary charge, but further investigation by law enforcement authorities led to the additional charges, including at least three felonies. Felonies tend to carry much more serious penalties than misdemeanors, and typically mean that defendants will deal with lengthy jail time and steep fines if convicted. For most, a solid criminal defense begins with carefully reviewing all charges and any related evidence under the guidance of an experienced counsel. In Iowa and elsewhere, this usually provides a strong foundation for achieving the best possible outcome.
