Deliberately Setting Fire

Arson is defined as burning or exploding a residence, commercial or public building, structure, or other type of dwelling with malice aforethought. In such cases, "malice" does not necessarily mean that the perpetrator acted with ill will. It can also refer to cases in which a burning or explosion was caused by extremely negligent or reckless behavior. If you have been charged with arson as a federal crime, it is crucial that you seek legal representation to defend you against your criminal charges.

Arson is charged as a federal crime when the act has a direct impact on interstate commerce or foreign commerce. A person can face federal arson charges even if they only possess the materials necessary for a fire or explosion, such as explosives or similar incendiary devices. Arson is considered a felony, and the penalties that come with a conviction can vary depending on the circumstances of the case. A conviction on standard arson charges can result in the accused serving 5 to 20 years in prison. If another individual was hurt as a result of the arson, the accused may face 7 to 40 years in prison. And if the arson resulted in another's death, the accused may face life imprisonment, or even the death penalty.
