How Our Fort Myers Criminal Lawyer Can Help

The motive for setting fire to a property varies. In some cases, an individual sets fire to his or her own property in order to obtain compensation from insurance. The level of destruction that occurs will significantly influence the degree of crime that you face. For instance, if other individuals were injured or died as a result of the fire, you could face first-degree arson charges. If a substantial amount of property is destroyed, you could face second-degree arson charges.

Penalties for arson typically include the following:

  • Prison or jail time
  • Steep fines
  • Probation
  • Restitution

Once in court, the prosecution will present their evidence against you. Our criminal defense team can effectively question the accuracy and validity of this evidence. Additionally, we can investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest. If any of your rights were violated during a search or arrest, our team can use this to your advantage and weaken the opposition’s case against you. Our goal is to fight for reduced or even dismissed charges. Reduced charges could mean that you have to attend court-mandated counseling, community service, or rehabilitation.
