a) A person commits the crime of burglary in the third degree if he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in a building with the intent to commit a crime therein.
(b) Burglary in the third degree is a Class C felony.
The sentence for a Class C felony is normally not more than 10 years or less than 1 year and 1 day unless sentencing is under Alabama's Habitual felony offender laws, which increase the range of punishment for individuals with prior felony convictions.
Code of Alabama Section 13A-7-7
What's the difference between burglary third-degree and criminal trespass?
Burglary involves entering or remaining unlawfully in either a building or a dwelling with the intent to commit a crime in the building or dwelling. Trespass means that a person knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in either a building or a dwelling or on real property without legal authority to do so. The primary difference is that a person who is on (or in) property in a trespass case is not accused of having entered with the intent to commit a criminal act beyond the unlawful entering.
