You can be charged with first-degree felony burglary if you enter a building without permission while someone else is in the building and you have a weapon. This charge also applies if you enter a building without permission and commit assault, even if no bodily harm results. There is a minimum sentence of six months in custody and a maximum of 25 years.
There are a couple of ways a second-degree burglary can be committed. First, the actor could enter a financial institution or building where controlled substances are being kept and use the threat of force. Second, the actor could enter a government, religious, or historic building with the intent to steal or damage property. Second-degree burglary is a felony with a maximum sentence of ten years.
Entering a building with the intent to commit a felony or gross misdemeanor is third-degree burglary, as long as the type of building doesn’t qualify the act as second-degree burglary. Third-degree burglary is also a felony and has a maximum sentence of five years in custody.
Entering a building without permission with the intent to commit a misdemeanor is fourth-degree burglary, a gross misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in custody and a $3,000 fine.
