Penalties for Burglary & Other Theft Crimes

Burglary is a felony criminal offense, punishable by up to five or twenty years, depending on whether or not the building is a dwelling. Robbery is similarly a felony, with a penalty of up to twenty years in prison, or up to life or even the death sentence for armed robbery. Less serious theft offenses such as shoplifting are either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on factors including the value of stolen goods.

For example under Georgia Code §16-8-12 (2012), for property stolen that is valued at between $1,500.01 and $5,000, the penalty ranges from one to five years in prison, while theft of property worth more than $24,999.99 you can be sent to prison for up to twenty years. Theft by shoplifting, §16-8-14, can also be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
