While all violent crimes are taken very seriously in the eyes of the law, certain offenses carry heavier penalties. Crimes which cause damage to another person's property and have the potential to carry risk to another's life are prosecuted severely in the state of Connecticut. At Red Law Firm, LLC, our New Haven criminal defense attorney provides aggressive defense for all violent crimes, including arson.
Arson is a felony which involves intentionally setting fire to a structure or land of any type. Even if the building or structure in question does not burn down completely, you could be charged with arson.
The exact charge and penalties you could face depend on the nature of the alleged offense. Typically, a prosecutor will take into account the amount of damage which was done, as well as whether anyone was hurt.
Our goal as your New Haven criminal defense attorney is to gather sufficient evidence to prove your innocence or illustrate why charges against you should be dismissed. We may be able to prove that evidence was gathered illegally or that you were not properly read your rights, which may lead to your case being dropped entirely.
