Under Pennsylvania law, “Burglary” is defined as entering a building illegally with the intent to commit a crime.

Burglary is usually charged as a first degree felony (F1) if the alleged burglary took place in someone's home, or people were present at the time of the incident.

If the building is not a home (adapted for overnight accommodation) AND if no one is present at the time of entry, Pennsylvania law classifies it as a felony of the second degree (F2).
