What Happens if You’re Charged With Burglary in Milwaukee?

If police arrest you and the state of Wisconsin charges you with burglary, you could be facing serious penalties.

Burglary is a Class F felony here, which means you could be facing 12 years, 6 months of imprisonment (there’s a maximum of 7 years, 6 months of initial confinement, as well as a maximum 5 years of extended supervision). You could also be slapped with fines totaling up to $25,000.

If you’re convicted of committing burglary while armed, whether you entered the premises armed or you armed yourself during the commission of the crime, or if you commit battery during the burglary, you’re facing Class E felony charges. That means you could spend up to 10 years in confinement with 5 years of extended supervision – and the fine can total up to $50,000.
