Defense for Florida Arson Charges

Miami Criminal Lawyer: Protecting Your Rights and Your Freedom

Considered a serious violent felony, arson is a charge that involves willfully or unlawfully causing damages by fire or by explosion.

Title XLVI § 806.01 of the Florida Statutes states that a person may be charged with arson should the following be damaged:

  • Any dwelling, occupied or not, or its contents;
  • Any structure where people are normally present; or
  • Any other structure known or should have been known to be occupied

Penalties for Arson in Florida

Damaging these structures by fire or by explosion is a felony of the first degree. Under Florida law, a first-degree felony is punishable by up to $15,000 in fines, up to 30 years in state prison, or both.

According to § 806.031 of the Florida Statutes, if an arson results in any bodily harm to another person, additional misdemeanor charges can be charged. If the arson results in great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement to another person, separate second-degree felony charges will be pursued.

Serious allegations that pack devastating criminal penalties, arson charges require thorough investigations, meticulous preparation, and experienced representation.
