  • Burglary
  • Breaking and Entering
  • Arson
  • Larceny/ Theft/ Shoplifting
  • Criminal Trespass


The penalty for theft or a property crime depends on several factors, including the value of the property in question and the severity of the charge. For example, first-degree burglary is a Class D felony that could result in up to 160 months in prison, while second-degree burglary is a Class G felony, punishable by a 31-month prison term. At the other end of the spectrum, trespass in the second degree is a Class 3 misdemeanor, punishable by a $200 fine and 20 days in jail.
