    The sentence imposed will depend on the facts of the case as well as your mitigation and antecedents, if any. Theft in dwelling carries a mandatory jail sentence, the length of which depends on various factors, such as the value and number of the item(s) taken, whether restitution has been made, the circumstances of the offence etc. See Penal Code, s 380.
