Simple Burglary — La R.S. 14:62

Simple burglary is the unauthorized entering of any dwelling, vehicle, watercraft, or other structure, movable or immovable, or any cemetery, with the intent to commit a felony or any theft therein, other than as set forth in R.S. 14:60 (Aggravated Burglary).

It is worth noting that a theft does not have to occur for the offense to be considered a Simple Burglary. The individual only needs the intent to commit a felony or any theft.

 

Penalties

Whoever commits this crime shall be fined not more than two $2,000, imprisoned with or without hard labor for not more than 12 Years, or both.
