Rancho Cucamonga Burglary Defense Attorney
What is the Sentence for Burglary in California?
What differentiates a first-degree burglary charge from a second-degree charge is mainly where the police or prosecutor deems the alleged burglary took place. If they believe the burglary took place in a residence – such as a house, apartment, room where someone lives – that would classify the charge as first-degree burglary. If the burglary is suspected to have occurred in some other type of building, then it would likely be considered a second-degree burglary charge.
The penalties for 1st & 2nd degree burglary include:
- First-degree burglary - carries a maximum penalty of up to 6 years in state prison.
- Second-degree burglary - carries a maximum penalty of up to 3 years in state prison
