What Is Considered Burglary in Texas?
Under Texas Penal Code 30.01, burglary is defined as entering a building or other property with the intent to commit a felony or theft. It is also considered burglary if you enter another person's home, vehicle, watercraft, or aircraft with the intent to commit a felony or theft. If you are caught in the building or property after you have entered it, you may be charged with burglary of a building or burglary of a habitation. A conviction for either of these charges may result in significant penalties.
The penalties for burglary depend on the type of burglary committed and the circumstances of the crime. First-degree burglary is the most serious type of burglary, and a conviction can result in a life sentence. Second-degree burglary is less serious, but a conviction can still result in a prison sentence of up to 20 years.
What Are the Penalties for Burglary in Texas?
Burglary of a building or habitation:
- Third-degree felony: A conviction can result in up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000
- Second-degree felony: A conviction can result in 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000
- First-degree felony: A conviction can result in 5 to 99 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000
