Burglary, also known as breaking and entering, is addressed under multiple sections in the Code of Virginia. The sentence range varies depending on the intent of the criminal actor and whether or not that person had a weapon at the time of the offense. At a minimum, it is punishable by up to twenty years in prison. A person convicted of burglary with the intent of committing murder, rape, robbery or arson will face between five and twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. A person convicted of burglary with a deadly weapon can be sentenced to within twenty years to life. Regardless of the form, it is considered a crime of violence that will result in higher sentencing guidelines in case of any later criminal charges.
Robbery is much more serious than simple theft.
Robbery is a form of theft achieved by violence, threatened or actual serious bodily harm, or by use or display of a deadly weapon. It is punishable by no less than five years and up to life in prison.
