Ohio Penalties for Burglary

As with most crimes involving theft, burglary carries serious consequences and penalties. Most burglaries are second-degree felonies carrying two to eight years in jail. Second-degree burglary is characterized by the unauthorized entry with the intent to commit a crime inside.

In Ohio, aggravated burglary is punishable by 3 to 11 years in jail and involves:

  • Unlawful entry
  • Presence of one or more persons
  • Criminal intent
  • Possession of a weapon or dangerous explosive device
  • Threatening to or physically harming someone

When you commit burglary in another individual's house or place of dwelling, the charges become even more severe. In some cases, we may be able to argue charges down to trespassing if there was only an unlawful entrance with no intention to commit a crime. No matter what charges you are facing, we can fight to make sure you receive favorable results.
