What is the legal definition of burglary 1st degree in the state of Missouri?

Asked over 1 year ago - Camp Hill, PA

If the person did not actually enter the premises, and never had any intentions of theft,
but was under the influence of alcohol and not in control of his anger at the time, what
legal recourse does he have in amending the charges, and getting more appropriate help
in overcoming his substance dependency, rather than incarceration?
