5 to 99 years, in TX they dont like folks who break into houses. If it was a buisiness its only 2 to 10.

My son got 3 years. He didn't steal anything, just snuck in the window to see a girl...her mom was not amused (not that I was either). I only make the distinction for sentence length comparison. He also sat in Jail (9 mos) until they finally offered him a sentence that he felt he deserved for being so stupid while already on Probation.

That is not entirely correct. Burglary of a habitation is a 2nd-degree felony punishable by 2-20 years in TDCJ. However, if it is shown that the party entered the premises with intent to commit, attempted to commit, or did commit a felony other than felony theft, it is a 1st-degree felony punishable by 5-99 years or life.

I do believe that it will depend on if he had a weapon or not as well. Then, it would be considered aggravated...I think. Or if there was an "attempt to commit...anything" such as attempt to commit sexual assault, then the charges are way more extensive.

without more information, there is no way to no for sure. The only thing that can be said for sure, is as long as it was not an unconsensual entering of the house to do something other than theft, the punishment range is 2-20 years. If there was no deadly weapon used, he is eligible for straight probation and also eligible for defrrred adjudication regardless of use of a weapon. What will actually be offered depends on to many factors such as the facts, county, prosecutor, victims, etc.
