In recent years arson crimes have escalated in number and in their devastation. Arson crimes are responsible for destroying tens of thousands of acres and hundreds of family homes in San Diego County and throughout all California Counties. Such destruction costs hundreds of millions to the local and state communities and governments. Accordingly, law enforcement and prosecutors enforce these crimes to the fullest extent of the law which is why anyone who is charged with an arson crime must immediately hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
In their rush to apprehend a suspect and hold someone accountable, police and fire investigators make mistakes and innocent people are arrested and their reputations ruined. Similar, to the FBI's unsubstantiated arrest and media frenzy of Mr. Jewell as the bomb suspect at the 1996 Olympics. Simply, arson is the intentional setting fire to any building or property. However, if a firefighter or someone is killed as a result of the fire, murder charges can be filed.
