Hello, A burglary in the 2nd degree is a class C violent felony. And attempted Burg 2 is a class D violent felony. Probation would be possible. Felony probation in New York last for five years. Whether the district attorney would agree to probation is another matter and will depend upon the facts and circumstances of this case. The minimum jail sentence on a class D violent felonies two years and the maximum would be seven.
