Types of burglary charges
Burglary is a legal term used to describe someone who enters someone else’s property without permission with the intent to commit a theft, assault or a felony crime. There are many different types of burglary charges in Texas, including:
- Burglary occurred somewhere other than in a residence (house, apartment building, etc.) – State jail felony (punishable by 6 months to 2 years in jail, up to $10,000 fine)
- Burglary occurred in residence (house, apartment building, etc.) – Second-degree felony (punishable by 2 to 20 years in jail, up to $10,000 fine)
- Burglary occurred in residence and burglar attempted to (or committed) a felony – First-degree felony (5 years to life in prison, plus fine)
