Commercial Burglary - These are among the ones that do a "life sentence on the installment plan". They are in jail, then out, then in, and out. They graduate to prison because of so many priors and the sentences get longer. In the end, most of their life is spent in jail or prison for sometimes just stupid crimes. Of course they leave a long string of victims in the process.
