Burglary - Habitation

Burglary of a Residence is a second degree felony. It is punishable by confinement of not less than 2 years nor more than 20 years in prison. Under some circumstances this, offense could be upgraded to a first-degree felony, which is punishable by 5 to 99 years of imprisonment. Burglary of a Habitation can be greatly reduced by using a few safety precautions. For instance, installing security lighting, security systems and alarms and solid-core exterior doors with heavy-duty locks are just a few methods that could help prevent home break-ins. Prominently advertise the fact that your home has an alarm system. Potential criminals will move on if your home appears too risky to attempt a burglary by forced entry.
