Defending Against an Arson Conviction
In order to articulate a clear understanding of your rights and build a strong, compelling defense case, it will be absolutely imperative to consult with an Orange County criminal defense lawyer if you or a loved one is under investigation for arson charges. According to California Penal Code §451, it is illegal to commit arson or to assist another individual in committing arson. Arson is defined as the act of intentionally setting fire to property, land, business, or residential property with malicious intent.

If you are convicted of arson, you may face up to 9 years in a state prison, depending on the case. For an arson conviction causing great bodily injury to another individual, you could face 5 to 9 years in a state prison. For an arson charge involving an inhabited dwelling, an individual could face 3 to 8 years in prison and 2 to 6 years for an uninhabited structure or forest land. For a second, third, fourth and so on arson conviction, an additional 3 to 5 years could be added on to the sentence.
