Penalties for Burglary in Nevada
Unlike a number of other states’ laws pertaining to burglary, breaking and entering is not an element of Nevada’s burglary law. A burglary suspect does not need enter the structure by way of forced entry to be charged for burglary – an individual can even be invited inside, but if he or she enters with the intention to commit any of the crimes previously mentioned, a burglary has taken place.
If convicted, penalties for burglary can include:
- Up to 10 years in Nevada State Prison
- If a deadly weapon was used, up to 15 years in Nevada State Prison
- $10,000 in fines
