If you have been arrested for arson do not hesitate to hire an attorney to begin preparing your defense as this is a felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison. Arson is treated as an inherently dangerous crime by the state prosecutor and they investigate it thoroughly. My firm can provide the resources to defend you from any arson charges brought forth by the prosecutor’s office.
Florida Statute 806.01 states that any person who willfully and unlawfully, or while in the commission of any felony, by fire or explosion, damages or causes to be damaged:
Any dwelling, whether occupied or not, or its contents;
Any structure, or contents thereof, where persons are normally present; or
Any other structure that he or she knew or had reasonable grounds to believe was occupied by a human being.
