​In Florida burglary is defined as entering or remaining in a dwelling, structure, or conveyance owned by or in the possession of another person with the intent, at the time of entering, to commit another offense therein. Burglary also means entering a dwelling, structure, or conveyance with permission or consent and remaining therein (a) surreptitiously, with the intent to commit another offense inside; (b) after permission to remain has been withdrawn, with the intent to commit another offense inside; or (c) with the intent to commit or attempt to commit a forcible felony inside.     

Structure is defined as any building of any kind, either temporary or permanent, that has a roof over it, together with the curtilage thereof. Conveyance means any motor vehicle, ship, vessel, railroad vehicle or car, trailer, aircraft or sleeping car; and to enter a conveyance includes taking apart any portion of the conveyance. Dwelling means a building or conveyance of any kind, temporary or permanent, mobile or immobile, which has a roof over it and is designed to be occupied by people lodging therein at night, together with the curtilage thereof.  

Burglary is a serious felony charge. A conviction can result in a long prison sentence and costly fines.

Florida Burglary Penalties

The penalties for burglary depend on the specific facts and circumstances of the case.
