Criminal Practice – Burglary – ‘Entry’ – Breaking or Entering – Robbery – Show-Up ID – Restitution (access required)

State v. Watkins Where the state showed only that the butt of a shotgun entered the victim’s home as it broke a window - after which defendant heard the victim inside the home and ran away - the state failed to show the “entry” required to convict defendant of first-degree burglary. However, in convicting defendant of burglary, the jury necessarily found all the elements of felonious breaking or entering.
