Home invasion is a breaking and entering charge that involves entering an occupied dwelling residence. There is no specific section in the Criminal Code for home invasion, but this charge is treated differently than other breaking and entering offences. The fact that the event occurred in an occupied residence is an aggravating feature, and will be prosecuted accordingly.

The maximum penalty of home invasion is life imprisonment, and the prosecutor will ask for a significant jail sentence if you are found guilty of this charge. It is imperative that you retain a strong defence lawyer to defend you against this charge and its consequences.
