Arson in Texas

Arson is a serious criminal act. It differs from an accidental fire since malice is implied. An act of arson could be committed to harm the inhabitants, damage the structure and/or to collect on an insurance policy.

Following a fire, the owner of the building or home will be the fire investigators’ first arson suspect. They will scour through your finances and personal and employment histories to establish a motive for committing arson.

There were 418 arson arrests in Texas in 2016 – that’s more than one per day. Texas police are cracking down on suspicious behavior. But instances of mistaken identity can occur. And many crime and fire scene investigators use faulty equipment and tests to determine a culprit, and evidence can be quickly tainted due to the nature of the alleged crime. Our legal team knows how to exploit these and other procedural faults, which can help maintain your innocence.

Ready to Start Your Defense Today

Arson is considered a second-degree felony, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence and a fine not exceeding $10,000. In order to avoid conviction at all costs, let Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law protect your rights and freedom throughout the legal process.
