Depends on what exactly mean by "violent crime."
For sentencing & parole eligibility purposes, Residential Burglary is considered a "felony involving violence." Anyone who has a prior conviction for any "felony involving violence" is required to serve 100% of their sentence if convicted of a new "felony involving violence."
If someone has two prior conviction for a "felony involving violence," they are subject to a higher sentencing range and the 100% requirement if convicted of a third.
Residential Burglary was only added to the list of "felonies involving violence" in 2015, so there may be some interesting issues if she has a Residential Burglary conviction from before that time. Definitely something she needs to discuss with an attorney before she makes any decisions in her case.
