As defined by the Texas Penal Code § 28.02, a person can be charged with arson if they start a fire, regardless of whether the fire continues after ignition, or cause an explosion with the intent to destroy any of the following:

  • Any vegetation, fence, or structure on open-space land; or
  • Any building, habitation, or vehicle.

Charges and penalties may also vary depending on the unique factors involved in your case. These factors include the type of property that was damaged, your prior criminal record, and whether an injury or death resulted. Such factors can result in heightened charges and penalties, all of which pose extensive fines and severe terms of imprisonment.

A former prosecutor for nearly two decades, Attorney D'Amore is recognized as a highly experienced attorney skilled in litigation.
