What is the difference between burglary and theft?
Im pretty sure that burglary is breaking into a house and stealing....theft is just stealing wherever someone sees fit to steel without breaking in In a burglary, a theft does not need to take place. burglary is defined as the act of unlawfully entering a habitable structure with the intent to commit a theft or felony. so, some one who breaks into a house with the intent to commit aggravated assault, and steals nothing, is guilty of burglary. and theft is the acquisition of property by deception or failure to make a proper attempt to return lost or misplaced property.

If you are 18 years in Florida and you move out of your parents home with all your belongings can they take them back?
If they're your belongings, no. The problem is who actually owns what you think is "yours." If you move out and take things that are not legally yours, it can be considered burglary (criminally) or conversion (civilly). Under those circumstances, you may have to return it or pay for it. In addition, you might be guilty of a crime.

How are citizens innocent until proven guilty?
When you are accused of a crime, the law does not immediately treat you as being guilty. But, after you're properly found guilty under the law, you are treated differently-- you lose rights, you are punished, etc. The key to the American system of justice is that everyone is treated the same until that legal decision is made as to guilt or innocence. It has to be that way in order for the system to work. Since the law does not require anyone to prove their own innocence, they have to be presumed innocent until and unless they are found guilty by the proper process. If you take a few minutes to imagine how it would work the other way around, you'll immediately see the wisdom of this system.
