What is considered a burglary crime?
Burglary is more complicated than other theft crimes and is punished far worse under Illinois law. It is considered an intentional act of entering and remaining within any building or residence without permission with the intent of committing a crime therein.
How you will be punished depends on the circumstances of the crime, including your criminal history. For example, a burglary of a closed commercial building is punished less severely than a burglary of a home with people inside. A burglary crime is usually considered a Class 2 felony which carries anywhere from three to seven years in jail. Your charge can be upgraded to a Class 1 felony if the burglary is perpetrated in a day care center or similar place of business or in a place of worship, resulting in 4 to 15 years in jail.
