California State law divides burglary into subsections when determining

of an offense, individuals may face a misdemeanor or felony. Though burglary
is not penalized as harshly as

are facing charges for an alleged burglary, now is the time to take action with a
Long Beach defense attorney.
Penalties for burglary can include:
Second degree burglary. This offense encompasses most forms of burglary, including looting, which
is burglary during an emergency. Individuals convicted of this crime may
face one year of county jail time.
First degree burglary. Considered a more serious offense, first degree burglary includes home
invasions and crimes committed when a building or structure are inhabited,
or utilized as a residence. Sentences for this crime can include two,
four, or six years of prison time.
Burglary committed with explosives. Individuals can be charged with this offense if they enter a building
and attempt to gain access to a vault or safe through the use of explosives.
Prison terms for this crime can last three, five, or seven years.
