A: Burglary in the 3rd degree is a class 4 felony offense in Arizona. The maximum penalty for a person with no prior felony convictions is 3.75 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections. It has a presumptive sentence of 2.5 years and a mitigated sentence of 1 year. Probation may also be available in certain circumstances for a maximum length of 4 years and up to 1 year in jail as a condition of probation. There is also a maximum fine of $150,000 plus surcharges. Again, these are possible penalties for a person with no prior felony convictions. The sentences are enhanced greatly with each previous felony conviction.
