    The sentence would depend on the facts of the case. Under s 380 of the Penal Code, theft-in-dwelling carries a mandatory jail sentence. The length of the sentence will depend 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.
