First Degree Burglary Charges

Posted over 2 years ago. Applies to Phoenix, AZ, 1 helpful vote


The type of punishment handed down for a burglary offense in Arizona depends on the severity of the crime. First degree burglary can be charged as a class 3 felony for non-residential property and a class 2 felony for residential property. Under Arizona law, a class 3 felony carries a mandatory prison term of 5 to 15 years in prison and a class 2 felony carries a mandatory prison term of 7 to 21 years in prison.

Oftentimes, an individual can lessen the severity of a charge for burglary in the first degree by retaining a private Phoenix criminal defense attorney.
