Phoenix Arson Defense Attorney
Over 20 Years of Criminal Defense Skill
Arizona law defines arson as the intentional damaging of a home, vehicle,
or other structure by means of a fire or explosion. While some arson cases
are truly malicious attempts to harm another person or their property,
the most common types of arson cases involve the burning of a home or
even a vehicle for the purpose of committing insurance fraud. If a death
occurs as a result of an arson, the responsible individual(s) may be charged with
felony murder or conspiracy to commit murder.

While arson cases are far less common than other crimes such as drug offenses
or sex crimes, the potential penalties are still severe. Prosecutors in
Arizona almost always treat arson as a dangerous offense by designating
‘fire’ as a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument capable
of causing serious physical injury or death. Such a designation is made
even if no one was hurt, or if no one was home at the time of a fire.
Upon conviction for either the charge of arson of an occupied structure
or arson of an unoccupied structure, judges have no discretion but to
impose lengthy prison sentences.
