What Makes a First-Degree Burglary Charge
First-degree burglary charges carry a maximum penalty of two, four, or six years in state prison. 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.
Potential Penalties for Second Degree Burglary
Being convicted of second-degree burglary means you could face:
- One year in county jail
- Up to three years in state prison
- Additional fines
