The crime of Arson is committed when one intentionally sets fire to a building or any property. When facing arson charges in MA, it is important to obtain experienced legal representation as early as possible in order to protect your rights. In Massachusetts, punishments for arson can vary, but typically include fines and/or imprisonment. Given the possible severity of the punishment, charges of arson are best dealt with head-on.

The criminal defense lawyers at Altman & Altman will fully explain your rights. Depending on the specifics of the case, the crime of arson can be considered a felony or misdemeanor, and can carry possible jail or prison time as well as fines. Degrees of consideration include whether a person has a prior criminal history, how much damage was caused as a result of the arson, and whether a person was injured or killed. Other issues include the worth and the kind of property that was damaged (burning a house, school or house of worship carry higher penalties than burning an abandoned building, for example), the time of day the fire occurred, if neighboring buildings were damaged or in danger of being damaged, if insurance fraud was a motive, and/or if the person who started the fire was paid to do so. Our MA arson defense attorneys will carefully review all of the circumstances surrounding your charges in order to provide you with criminal defense advice of the highest quality.
