Is Burglary a Felony?
Burglary charges are a severity level 7 felonies and severity level 9 felonies when the property entered was a vehicle, aircraft, watercraft or railroad car.
According to Kansas Statutes § 21-5807, individuals may either be charged with a standard burglary offense or with aggravated burglary. Both charges are felony offenses that are punishable by several years in prison, so if you have been charged with any of these charges it is important to contact our Olathe burglary attorney today.

When the property being burglarized is inhabited by a human and/or burglarized with a weapon, including firearms, aggravated burglary charges will be prosecuted. This charge is more serious than a standard burglary offense and is considered a level 5, person felony.
There are a number of factors that will be considered when determining the prison sentences for convicted offenders, including the property that was burglarized, the severity level of the crime and a person's criminal history. Standard burglary penalties can result in prison sentences for as long as three years, and the maximum prison sentence for aggravated burglary is just over 11 years.
