You broke into someone's house .... to talk to him?


Nobody's that dumb.

You're lucky you didn't get shot (I would have killed you first and "talked" later).

If you have been charged with burglary of habitat, then yes, the prosecutor has enough evidence for a crime. I must agree with Mr. Dunn that you will have trouble finding a jury with even one member who will believe that you broke in to talk. Use a telephone, or even facebook.
