What is the punishment?


Answer by  mousy26 (25)

Burglary, battery (causing bodily harm) and robbery are Class 'E' felonies. The punishment for a first-time offender is up to $50,000, up to 15 years in prison or both.

Basically the letter clues you in to how severe the felony is considered. "A" felonies have the heavier penalties, while "I" felonies are less severe. For a class "E" felony the penalty carries a fine potential of up to $50,000.00 and or imprisonment of up to fifteen years. Prior offenders can expect higher fines and longer imprisonment.


Answer by  jsmith (2067)

Class E felonies are middle of the road in terms of "severity" of the crime. The organization of felonies goes from class A (murder, for example) down to some lower letter depending on the state. Some states classify only down to E, some go all the way to I. Sentencing guidelines also vary by state, jail time is possible.

Depending on the state, a class "e" felony is the lowest of all felonies charges. It is very close to a misdemeanor. Don't be fooled is still can mean imprisonment!
