How many degrees are there? :wha:
He's been charged with first-degree burglary and fourth-degree assault so I guess he'll be imprisoned to the fifth-degree. :confused:

"Track stood on the porch," LaPointe wrote. "Communication was attempted which failed due to Track yelling and calling myself and other officers peasants and telling us to lay our guns on the ground before approaching the residence."

Palin walked back in and the officers saw him moving around, the affidavit states. Then he came out an upstairs window onto the garage roof.

. . .

Track Palin had driven to the house, found the front door locked and saw his father pointing a gun at him through a window next to the door, the officer wrote. He told his father several times to shoot him, then punched out the window when his father tapped it with the gun.

"Track stated he then went through the broken window and disarmed Todd and put him on the ground," the affidavit says. "While Track had Todd on the ground he started hitting Todd in the head. Todd was able to get away from Track and get out of the residence."

The 'degree' label in US criminal law is used to designate things like maximum possible sentence, and is usually defined by the severity of the crime, e.g. punching someone once or twice vs beating them half to death, or other factors like premeditation. The exact definitions and potential sentences vary a lot.
