What are the Penalties for Burglary?

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
This offense can carry up to 15 years in jail and numerous fines.

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
This offense can carry up to 30 years in jail and results in serious fines and other penalties.
