A Sacramento homeowner came home to find 24-year-old Jennifer Burgess taking a shower in his bathroom on a Tuesday afternoon. The homeowner asked her to get dressed before detaining her until police arrived. Burgess was found with property belonging to the homeowner and was arrested and charged with second degree burglary.
A.R.S. 13-1507 states that a person commits burglary in the second degree by entering and remaining unlawfully in a residential home with the intent to commit theft or another felony. Second degree burglary is a class 3 felony.
If convicted of second degree burglary, a first time offender can expect to receive one of the following prison sentences:
Felony Mitigated Minimum Presumptive Maximum Aggravated
Class 3 2 years 2.5 years 3.5 years 7 years 8.75 years
A burglary conviction not only carries a prison sentence, but it can also make it very difficult to find employment in the future.
