Burglary is defined as unlawful entry into a home, business or any type of structure with the intent to commit a crime. The act itself is not limited to theft or larceny. Simply trespassing by walking through an open door constitutes the crime.

Burglary of a habitation is a second-degree felony. You could be sentenced to two to 20 years in prison. The intent or actual commission of another felony during the burglary enhances the charge to a first-degree felony with up to 99 years or life in prison. Add to those penalties a $10,000 fine.

As a former prosecutor, criminal defense lawyer Jeffrey C. Grass understands how the opposing side builds their cases.
