    Generally to be charged with burglary, you have to have an intent to commit a crime once you are there. Also your question is a little confusing. If you jump the fence, haven't you already entered the property?

    Technically maybe. You have two offenses right off the bat. Trespassing (entering private property with no permission from landowner) and destruction of private property (breaking the window.) However, depending on the fence, you MAY be charged for attempted burglary, as jumping a fence may be considered "breaking in."

    On a side note, Florida has a RUTHLESS Castle Law doctrine, so if this was you or someone close to you, say thank you they left with their lives. The owners could have shot you in the head, and still made it to dinner by 4:00. Wise up.
