What are the 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 to 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

Is burglary a felony in Nevada?

In Nevada, burglary offenses are classified as a Category B felony. This level of felony is punishable by between one and 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The offense can be aggravated if there was a deadly weapon used during the crime.
