First offense burglary in first degree, possession of a stolen firearm, violation of house arrest damaging EM device.

Asked about 1 year ago - Greenville, SC

My son is 15 years old and entered a residential dwelling during the nighttime in SC. He was charged with burglary in the first degree. While awaiting trial he was placed on house arrest with an electronic monitor. He violated house arrest, cut off his monitor and ran away. When he returned home, he again left the house and somehow obtained a stolen firearm. What kind of sentencing are we looking at. Prior to these events he had no criminal history.

    Answered . Your son is facing a very long time in prison if he is being charged as an adult. The First Degree Burglary charge could carry a life sentence itself. Your son needs a good attorney. Good luck.
