What are The Elements of a 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.

What is The Maximum Sentence for Burglary in Idaho?

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.
