What is Commercial Burglary (Penal Code § 459) and What Are the Defenses?

Stopped for shoplifting but then handed a piece of paper suggesting you will be charged with commercial burglary?  Is that a mistake?  What is the difference between commercial burglary and shoplifting?  What are the defenses?  Doesn’t burglary have to happen at night?  What is the punishment?  What is AB2124 and will it apply to my case?  How about a motion for civil compromise?  For answers to these questions, click on the following link.
