Burglary Defended By A Theft Crimes Attorney

Burglary is defined as the act of unlawfully entering a building or structure with the intent to steal or to commit any other crime. In the State of Washington there are 2 types of burglary for which you can be arrested:

  • Burglary in the Second Degree is considered a Class B Felony and is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment, a fine of up to $20,000 or both. Additionally, you could be charged with "Residential Burglary" which is also a Class B Felony but which can carry stiffer penalties and is considered more serious.

  • Burglary in the First Degree is a Class A Felony and is the most serious burglary charge. Burglary in the First Degree involves being armed with a weapon or committing an assault during the burglary. This type of felony carries a penalty of life imprisonment and a fine of up to $50,000 or both.
