Penalties for Breaking and Entering in Salem, MA

For a breaking and entering crime that occurred during the daytime, the charge is more likely to be a misdemeanor. If it took place at night, on the other hand, the defendant will probably face a felony charge. Typically, punishments for breaking and entering are as follows:

  • Misdemeanor: Maximum sentence of six months in jail
  • Armed with a deadly weapon: At least five years in state prison
  • Daytime felony: Up to 10 years in state prison
  • Nighttime felony: Up to 20 years in state prison

Keep in mind, though, that unless you were actually caught in the act of breaking and entering, the case against you might not be very strong. For example, your attorney can challenge eyewitness accounts as unreliable, especially for nighttime breaking and entering cases. Also, video recordings from security cameras are often poor quality, making it difficult for the prosecution to prove it was you.
