What can I do after getting arrested for breaking and entering into my girlfriend’s place?
I have been living with my girlfriend for about three years. I moved from New York to come live here in Illinois with her. Although we have been living in separate apartments, we spend a lot of time at each other's place. She has a ton of stuff at my place and I have a ton of stuff at hers. We both have keys to each other's place. We broke up over the weekend and I went to her place, using my key, to retrieve my things, specifically my computer for work. She called the police on me and I was arrested for breaking and entering. How is this possible? I thought we were handling this break up maturely and I am entitled to my own property. I didn't call the police on her when she went to my place to get her stuff.
