Dwelling aggravates a felony

"Dwelling" aggravates a felony where the crime is committed in the dwelling of the offended party provided that the latter has not given provocation therefor; in robbery with violence and intimidation against persons, dwelling is aggravating because in this class of robbery, the crime may be committed without the necessity of trespassing the sanctity of the offended party’s house; it is considered an aggravating circumstance primarily because of the sanctity of privacy that the law accords to the human abode.
