Burglary is defined as a person who enters any house or building with the intent to commit larceny, assault, battery, or steal money or property. Burglary is usually charged as a category B felony according to the NRS 205.060. The penalties include one to ten years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. If you were charged with burglary with possession of a deadly weapon, the penalties increase: two to fifteen years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. You could be guilty of a gross misdemeanor if you had any tool that is used for the purpose of burglary. It is also important to remember that if you were accused of invading someone's home or property and then stole from them, you could be convicted of two separate crimes and be given a longer sentence.
