Burglary first degree is 15 to life. If it is reduced to burglary second degree the range is 0 to 15. For larceny, receiving/possession of stolen goods, and breach of trust the potential penalty is determined by the amount of the loss. Less than 2000$ is a 30 day misdemeanor, 2000$ to 10,000$ is punishable by up to 5 years, and greater than 10,000$ is punishable by up to 10 years.

These are only the ranges that are prescribed by the statutes - the potential outcome and whether or not he goes to prison depends on the circumstances of his case, the prosecutor, the complaining witness, the evidence available, the defense lawyer, his prior record, etc. It's not a question that can be answered here.
