According to Florida Statutes, Arson is defined as the act of willfully and unlawfully causes damage to any structure or conveyance by use of fire or explosion, regardless if the structure or conveyance is occupied or not. This includes fires or explosions that occur while in the commission of any felony crime.

The arson charge is a first degree felony if the accused knew, or had reasonable grounds to believe that the structure was occupied at the time the fire or explosion occurred. A 1st degree felony is punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation.

Arson charges are a serious matter that are aggressively investigated and prosecuted. If the act of Arson was planned or carried out by two or more people an additional criminal charges may be added to the indictment such as conspiracy, insurance fraud, or in the event a person is killed as a result of the act of Arson, Murder or Manslaughter.

If the structure in question is (a) the defendant’s property or (b) is not one that is normally occupied by people or the defendant knew or should have known was occupied, it is second-degree arson which is a second degree felony, punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation.

Generally Arson is associated with the following types of structures: jails, prisons, or detention centers; hospitals, nursing homes, or other health care facilities; department stores, office buildings, business establishments, churches, or educational institutions during normal hours of occupancy; or other similar structures.
