According to Florida Criminal Statute §806.01, the criminal act of arson occurs when any person willfully and unlawfully causes damage to any structure or conveyance by use of fire or explosion, regardless if the structure or conveyance is occupied or not. This also includes fires or explosions that occurred during the commission of any felony crime, regardless if the fire or explosion was an accident or not.

If the arson causes damage and has occurred while the structure or conveyance was unoccupied, it is a felony of the second degree, which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years’ incarceration and a $10,000 fine.

If the arson had occurred while the accused knew or had reasonable grounds to believe the structure or conveyance was occupied by a human being, it is a felony of the first degree, which carries a maximum penalty of 30 years’ incarceration and a $15,000 fine.

Protecting Your Rights & Best Interests

If the arson results in the untimely death of another, the accused could be charged and tried for manslaughter or capital murder. In a capital murder case, the prosecution may seek the death penalty against the accused. Of course, with any capital crime, intent to end another's life must be proven. Otherwise, it is a felony manslaughter case.

In order to obtain a conviction for arson, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were present at the structure or conveyance to commit the act of arson, that you had means to commit the arson, and that you carried out the act of arson. Motive may or not have to be proven in an arson case depending on the specific issues surrounding the case and evidence against you. If the defense presented by your attorney at trial causes just one jury member to have reasonable doubt as to the alleged guilt of committing the arson, as it relates to the current trial, the accused cannot be found guilty. If the jury believes that your defense was more credible or viable than the prosecution's case, then you may be acquitted of all charges.
