Texas Burglary Laws & Penalties

In Texas, burglary is defined as doing one of the following without the consent of the property owner:

  • Entering a habitation, building, or any part of a building that is not available to the public with the intention of committing a felony, a theft, or an assault.
  • Staying concealed in a habitation or building with the intention to commit a felony, a theft, or an assault.
  • Entering a habitation or building and committing or attempting to commit a felony, theft, or an assault.

If burglary is committed in a building other than a habitation, it is considered a state jail felony. This type of felony is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 2 years in a state jail facility and a fine of up to $10,000.

If burglary is committed upon a habitation, however, it is a second-degree felony. This type of felony is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a fine of up to $1,000.

Burglary of a vehicle is defined as breaking into or entering a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent with intent to commit a felony or a theft. This crime is considered a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 1 year.
