No matter how serious the allegation, Krizman Law handles all levels of theft charges: municipal theft, misdemeanor theft, felony theft, burglary, robbery, motor vehicle theft, and motor vehicle trespass.
Burglary is a felony and requires the unlawful entry into an instrument meant for safekeeping with the intent to commit a crime inside. If the structure is something like a vault, safe, or cash register, the person commits third degree burglary which is a class 5 felony. A class 5 felony is punishable by up to 3 years in prison and a fine up to $100,000.*
If a person breaks into a structure with the intent to commit a crime against a person or property inside that building, the person commits second degree burglary which is a class 4 felony. A class 4 felony is punishable by up to 6 years in prison and a fine up to $500,000.*
If a person breaks into a structure and either assaults or menaces another person during the burglary, or if there was use or threatened use of deadly weapons or explosives, the person commits first degree burglary which is a class 3 felony. A class 3 felony is punishable by up to 12 years in prison and a fine up to $750,000.
*The felony classification can be ratcheted up if the intent for breaking into the instrument or structure was to steal controlled substances.
