The Degrees of Bulgary
In the state of Maryland, there are four degrees of burglary:
- 1st Degree Burglary in Maryland: Breaking and entering someone else’s home to steal or commit a violent crime. What sets 1st degree apart from other charges is that you used force to enter a place where people sleep.
- 2nd Degree Burglary in Maryland: Breaking and entering someone’s property with the intent to steal or commit a violent crime. 2nd degree is like 1st degree burglary in that you forcibly enter the area, but it is not a place where someone would sleep; so a storefront or warehouse for example.
- 3rd Degree Burglary in Maryland: Breaking and entering someone else’s dwelling with the intent of committing any crime. Commonly this is coupled with 1st degree burglary as well.
- 4th Degree Burglary in Maryland: Breaking and entering someone else’s dwelling even without the intent to steal; or simply possessing burglar’s tools can be 4th degree burglary. Commonly this charge is grouped with 1st or 2nd degree burglary.
