The unlawful entry of a building with the intent to commit a petty or grand theft, or any felony offense, is referred to as burglary.
First degree burglary is the criminal trespassing and theft committed within the home of someone else and is commonly referred to as “residential burglary”. First degree burglary is a felony offense and is punishable by an extensive jail or prison sentence, permanent criminal record, probation, and community service. A burglary conviction may result in sentencing enhancements if other crimes such as assault, battery, arson or murder occur during the offense.
