LOS ANGELES CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Arson is when a fire is willfully or recklessly set on someone else’s land or property, including forest land. The charge of arson typically does not apply to the property of the one who started a fire except in three instances:

1. The owner set fire to their own property for fraudulent purposes, such as for an insurance claim.
2. The fire that was set moves to another’s property.
3. Someone is injured or killed because of the fire that was set.

California also has a lesser charge of Reckless Burning, where someone can be arrested because they started a fire by accident. This might occur in a campground where the campfire wasn’t put out properly or by someone who threw a lit cigarette into dry grass. In general, many fires are started by accident, so it is important to schedule a consultation with a professional arson defense lawyer to discuss the details and the alternatives that are available.  Fill out our form for a free consultation from our top Los Angeles Attorney.  He will provide advice on if you have a case, and if so, what steps can be taken towards rectifying your charges.
