Potential Consequences of Burglary Charges
California State law divides burglary into subsections when determining the appropriate charge for a crime. Depending on the nature and severity of an offense, individuals may face a misdemeanor or felony. Though burglary is not penalized as harshly as robbery or carjacking, conviction can still lead to harsh, life-changing consequences. If you 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.
