Have You Been Accused of Committing Arson?

Arson charges can entail a number of circumstances. Although the events surrounding the alleged charge can impact the type of offense and penalties you face, all arson charges generally arise when a person starts a fire or causes an explosion with intent to destroy or damage property or wildlife. Damages do not necessarily have to occur in order for one to face these allegations.

According to §28.02 of Texas Statutes, charges can arise if the following are affected:

  • Vegetation or property on open-space land
  • Any building, structure, habitation (i.e. home), or vehicle

Arson is a felony, meaning that convicted offenders face considerable fines and imprisonment terms. Prosecutors also often push for enhancements when arson is committed to defraud insurance companies, when injuries or death occur, and in other certain circumstances.

Unless arson causes injury or death to another person, these charges are usually prosecuted as state jail, second-degree, and third-degree felonies, depending on the unique factors involved in the case. In addition to fines, terms of imprisonment for these felonies include up to 2 years for a state jail felony, up to 10 years for a third-degree felony, and up to 20 years for a second-degree felony.
