Understanding the Burglary Charge
Burglary is often confused with
robbery, but it is important to know that it is its own, distinct crime with separate
penalties. There are four elements to a burglary charge, each of which
must be present for an individual to be found guilty.
The four elements include:
Breaking and entering – an individual partially or completely enters a building through
fraud, force, or otherwise unauthorized means
Unauthorized – entry was made without the property owner's or resident's consent
Building and structure – entry was made into a building or structure, such as a home, shop,
garage, or shed; simply entering a fenced yard may not constitute as burglary
Intent – the individual must have intended to commit a crime—most
commonly theft, but this can also include arson, assault, etc.
In Idaho, a burglary can be punished by a sentence between 1-10 years of
imprisonment. If the burglary was conducted using explosives, the sentence
will be increased to imprisonment of 10-25 years. The exact sentence will
be determined by the judge and will take into consideration the degree
of severity of the crime and the involvement of weapons or harm caused.
