Burglary in the 3rd Degree is a class 4 felony. If you have no priors you are probation eligible. However, as a term of probation a judge can sentence you to up to one year in county jail. Prison is also a possibility. A judge could also sentence you to prison instead of probation. If sentenced to prison the ten would be anywhere from 1 to 3.75 years.

It all depends on how you are charged. If both of these offenses occurred on the same day you will likely be probation eligible and the Judge will have the discretion to give you up to a year in jail as a term of probation. If these offenses occurred on different days, you would be facing mandatory prison time. Whether you are hiring an attorney to assist you with these charges or going with an appointed attorney, you need to speak with them regarding the facts of the case and what all of the possible outcomes are. Good luck.
