It is a serious offense, which can cause extensive damage and injury. As such, arson charges come with hefty consequences. That is why it is important you have experienced legal representation.

Consequences of Committing Arson

Fires cause extensive damage to both people and property. A simple spark can cause whole forests to burn down and force people to evacuate. In the dry climate of the Southern California landscape, flames can spread quickly. While most arson cases are considered felonies in California, the actual penalties can change.

Punishment for arson depends on:

  • The type of property that was burned
  • If someone was injured
  • If someone died in the fire
  • Intention or recklessness

The penalties associated with arson charges include prison, fines, restitution, and probation. The crime will also appear on your criminal record, which can affect your future professional and personal prospects. That is why it is important that you seek legal guidance before a conviction.
