Riverside Arson Defense Attorney

Aggressive Defense for Arson Charges in California

Arson is defined under California Penal Code section 451 as the act of intentionally, and with malice, setting fire to property, land, and residential or business dwellings. Setting fire to your own home or property to commit insurance fraud is also illegal and considered arson.

If you've been accused of arson, contact our Riverside arson lawyers at Law Offices of Grech & Packer by calling (951) 291-0105 today.

What Are the Punishments for Arson?

The penalties for an arson conviction are steep, as severe damage is frequently caused by fires in our state.

If a person is convicted, they could face:

  • Up to 3 years in prison for setting fire to another's property
  • Up to 6 years in prison for arson of forest land or an uninhabited structure
  • Up to 8 years in prison for arson of an inhabited dwelling
  • Up to 9 years in prison for arson which causes great bodily injury

Penalties may include up to 5 additional years in prison if:

  • The defendant has already been convicted of arson in the past
  • Great bodily injury is caused to a firefighter or peace officer
  • Multiple structures were burned

If you are facing arson charges, it is imperative that you contact a Riverside arson defense lawyer as soon as possible. They can conduct a thorough investigation into your charges, and determine whether any errors, inconsistencies, or rights violations occurred at the hands of law enforcement or prosecutors in their case against you.
