An act to amend the crime of burglary in the San Andreas Penal Code.


  • Section 1. DEFINITIONS
    1. 'Inhabited property' refers to any inhabited dwelling house, vessel, which is inhabited and designed for habitation, floating home, or trailer coach.
    Section 2. AMENDMENTS
    1. Section 2 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

      (2)04. Burglary
      1. Any act of entering into the inhabited property of another without their permission, or the inhabited portion of any other building,with the intention of committing a crime, typically theft, is burglary of the first degree.
      2. All other kinds of burglary are of the second degree.
      3. This crime cannot stack with (2)02. Trespassing.
      - Penal Code (2)04 (First-Degree) is a felony punishable by no less than 130 minutes and no more than 190 minutes imprisonment.
      - Penal Code (2)04 (Second-Degree) is a misdemeanor punishable by no less than 25 minutes and no more than 55 minutes imprisonment.
      NOTES: show
      Burglary can include homes, apartments, offices, vehicles or any locked space with restricted access. Burglary is also committed irrelevant if any theft or other crime takes place. A less severe act of burglary is trespassing, which would account for instances where there is no intent to commit a crime, no locked door or other physical restriction.

      (2)05. Possession Of Burglary Tools
      1. A person who has in their possession the appropriate combination of tools necessary to commit any form of burglary, such as a tension bar, screwdriver, shimmy, or other appropriate items.
      - Penal Code (2)05 is an infraction of $3,000.
      NOTES: show
      It must be demonstrated that the person has a certain combination of these tools or in an appropriate context that would assume their usage in burglary. Having a screwdriver is not punishable alone, but a screwdriver, along with a tension bar without justification and in the circumstances that a crime may be about to be committed, is punishable.

    Section 3. AMENDMENTS
    1. Section 10 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

      (10)09. Gang Crimes Clause
      1. Any person who is convicted of a felony committed for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a criminal gang, or with the specific intent to promote, further, or assist in any criminal conduct by gang members, may be punished as follows:
        • if the felony is a serious felony, the person may be punished by an additional term of three (3) to five (5) years depending on the circumstances of the offense (( 30 - 60 minutes at officer's discretion ));
