Arson cases oftentimes involve an “expert” from the State of Minnesota such as a fire marshall. These experts are not infallible and it is important to provide legal representation to defend you against the state’s accusations and experts.
Arson oftentimes involves setting a home or business on fire causing damage to the property. This may also involve gross negligence and setting one’s own property on fire. There are five degrees of arson that range from felonies to misdemeanors and the charges increase depending on the severity of the crime.
- 1st degree – Up to 20 years in prison and / or a $35,000 fine
- 2nd degree – Up to 10 years in prison and / or a $20,000 fine
