Burglary crimes can vary greatly, however, each charge carries serious penalties and repercussions. Third degree felony burglary can carry a prison sentence of up to five years. If you commit burglary in a building and are not in the presence of others, it is considered a third degree crime.
Second degree felony burglary is committed on certain types of property:
- A home
- Store or business
- Authorized emergency vehicle such as a police car or ambulance
- A building where the offense to be committed is the theft of a controlled substance
Felony burglary in the first degree occurs when:
- You are armed or become armed while committing the offense
- You commit an assault or battery upon another
- You cause damage to the building during the burglary
