Notes on Use

This instruction is meant for use with 21 O.S. 1991, § 1438(A). In the opinion of the Commission, illegal entry differs from the other crimes in Chapter 58 of Title 21 primarily in that breaking is not an element of the crime. For the elements of malicious mischief, see 21 O.S. 1991, § 1760; McDaris v. State, 505 P.2d 502, 503-04 (Okl. Cr. 1973); Creekmore v. Redman Industries, Inc., 671 P.2d 73, 77 (Okla. Ct. App. 1983).
