Different Types of Burglary
In Florida, burglary is organized into three different offenses: first,
second, and third degree—all of which can result in significant
prison time. The seriousness of these offenses is decided based on the
circumstances of the alleged crime.
Florida's burglary offenses are defined as the following:
Third degree: committed in an unoccupied structure.
Second degree: committed in a dwelling (residence), occupied structure, emergency vehicle,
anywhere where the theft of a controlled substance occurs.
First degree: committed when the accused is armed, assault/battery occurs, a motor
vehicle is used to enter the structure, or damage valued at more than
$1000 is caused.
Please note that the definitions for burglary do not always include theft.
Law enforcement only has to believe that you have illegally entered a
home or building with the intent of committing a felony. For more information
