Re: So did the accused admit his guilt?

"An open window, at court, is the difference between breaking and entering (a crime) and entering to dick with you (...)

Hence one is a crime the other would be a civil case at best..."

I don't know how things stand where you live but around these parts "Criminal Trespass" and "Illegal Entry" are still criminal, not civil, offenses. They may be only misdemeanors while B&E is a felony (combining within itself, as it does, both trespass AND property damage), but still criminal.
