Arson

Jacksonville Florida Arson Lawyer

In Jacksonville, Florida, Arson can be charged as first-degree arson or second-degree arson.

Under Florida Statute Section 806.01, first degree arson occurs when the defendant willfully and unlawfully, or while committing a felony, damaged a dwelling or structure by fire or explosion. A dwelling does not need to be occupied. However, a structure must be one that is normally occupied by people or the defendant knew or should have known was occupied. This is a first degree felony.

However, 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.
