Burglary and Battery Charges
Being convicted of committing burglary can result in up to 5 years imprisonment for an individual. In the event that a battery takes place during the burglary, this raises the crime to a felony in the first degree which is punishable by imprisonment for up to 30 years. Battery can be the use of force or violence against an individual, touching or striking someone against their will or intentionally causing bodily harm to a person. The threat of force against an individual is considered assault which can also lead to a first-degree felony charge.
