But in Texas, the burglary and criminal trespass laws apply to home invasions. The lack of a separate law forces prosecutors to shoehorn home invasions into a category where they do not naturally belong. As a result, these prosecutions have lots of moving parts, and that dimension gives Weatherford criminal defense attorneys an edge.
