The three men caught raiding a major datacentre in central London earlier this week have all pleaded guilty to burglary charges. The trio were remanded at Thames Magistrates Court for sentencing on March 31 at Snaresbrook Crown Court. Police caught John Harrison, 31, of no fixed address, Darren May, 23, of Mansell Court in …
So, "The maximum sentence for burglary in a building other than a dwelling is ten years' imprisonment. ".
But if some spaced-out little lowlife breaks into & trashes my place, which would terrorise my pets & leave the family feeling completely violated, said lowlife would now attract just a caution.
It really is time we planned the barricades and sought the AKs...
Re: Not surprised...
The maximum sentence for domestic burglary is 14 years.

@ Ted Treen
I echo your sentiments wholeheartedly - although Chris rightly states the maximum sentence for domestic burgluary is 14 years, when was the last time anyone ever, even repeated and serial burglers got anything near that?
Looks like if you gots the money, you gets your justice.
What odds would you get that not only do they not get the maximum, if they haven't already got records as long as your arm, they don't even get a custodial sentence?
Only Level 3?
They need to put in a bit more game time to get those stats up. Get grinding chaps!
to the folks saying they are getting this much time because L3 has money, must of missed some thing or not read the same article. The article I read said they have not been sentence yet.
@Only Level 3?
I hear BT is much easier to beat.
