To convict you of home invasion, the prosecution must prove each of the following elements, beyond a reasonable doubt:

You entered the dwelling place of another person unlawfully

This generally means that you entered someone’s home without consent. Accidental entry does not satisfy this element. However, an “entry” occurs if any part of your hand, foot, or weapon enters the building.

You knew that someone was inside

This can also mean that you had good reason to think someone was home. The element can additionally be satisfied if you stayed inside after discovering someone was home.

You were armed with a dangerous weapon

A “dangerous weapon” can include a number of objects, including guns, knives, pens, lighted cigarettes, brass knuckles, etc.

You used force or threatened someone in the home

Retaining a highly skilled defense attorney may well be the difference between your freedom and a lengthy prison term. If you’re facing armed home invasion charges in Massachusetts, contact our highly experienced Boston criminal defense attorneys today, at 781-797-0555.
