breaking

A breakage; the removal of any protection against intrusion for the purpose of effecting an unlawful entry; a substantial and forcible act within the meaning of the offense of burglary, 13 Am J2d Burg § 8, although pushing open a door entirely closed will suffice. Anno: 23 ALR 112. What would be a breaking in burglary, it has been held, is equally a breaking by the sheriff to serve process and the right even to lift a door latch has been denied. Other cases hold that the door may be opened in the ordinary or usual manner, as by lifting the latch, turning the knob or turning a key left in the lock. See 42 Am J1st Proc § 44. See constructive breaking; forcibly; housebreaking; jail breaking; prison breaking.
