Arson is the act of intentionally burning any type of structure, such as a building or home. Arson generally also includes the burning of forest land or brush.
The severity of an arson charge and penalty generally depends on such factors as whether buildings were burned, whether they were occupied and whether insurance fraud was involved. As a general rule, more severe fire damage generally results in more aggressive prosecution with more severe penalties.
Arson charges are taken very seriously and usually involve prison terms and expensive bail amounts or no bail at all. Arson can result in multiple counts depending on the number of structures involved and can lead to other more serious charges such as murder and insurance fraud depending on the damage inflicted. The stakes are higher in arson than in other type of offenses.
Arson is both a state and federal crime. It is important to know whether you are facing state or federal charges, as this will require a different defense team and strategy. Federal charges typically put you up against a larger and more experienced team of prosecution lawyers and carry severe mandatory prison sentences.
One of the keys to a successful defense of arson is to have criminal lawyers intervene during pre-trial investigation. Effective investigation can uncover mistakes the prosecution has made, identify evidence in your favor and allow the use of tools such as polygraph tests and expert witnesses. A winning team of criminal lawyers will obtain access to the crime team and bring its own private arson investigators to the case.
The prosecution has experienced investigators whose only goal is to prove you guilty while giving you an overburdened public defender our court-appointed attorney to save your life.
Defending against arson charges requires thorough pre-trial investigation to add reasonable doubt. Our criminal lawyers prepare every case for trial . We will not rush to plea your rights away.
Mounting a successful defense requires pack of criminal lawyers and arson experts, not just a single attorney. Prosecutors will not pursue cases they feel they can't prove in trial. This is why it is critical to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject reasonable doubt that will let you win in the courtroom if necessary.
At LibertyBell Law Group, we have assembled a team of criminal attorneys with experience defending against arson charges.
