Definition of Arson Crimes

Arson is committed when a person intentionally burns almost any kind of structure or building, not just a house or business. California recognizes differing degrees of arson, based on such factors as whether the building was occupied and whether insurance fraud was intended.

With fires being a frequent occurrence in the San Fernando Valley and throughout Southern California, a defense firm must handle not only a court opinion, but popular opinion. When television stations and news outlets show the mass fires, the smoke filling the air and houses burned to the ground, it makes regular people have a very low opinion of anyone accused of starting a fire whether intentionally or unintentionally. This can make it a real battle for any arson defense attorney.

An experienced attorney can help you fight the crimes of Arson. It is always in your best interest to retain the services of tenacious legal team that can help you to establish a successful defense. Criminal defense of arson charges in Southern California courts revolves around (1) questioning the identity of the suspect – how is he linked to the fire (2) establishing intent – was the fire started intentionally or accidentally and (3) reviewing the other legal elements required for prosecution pursuant to Penal Code Section 451.
