Arson is a crime generally understood by the public to encompass the unlawful destruction of property by the use of fire or an explosion. An allegation of arson is a serious one and should not be taken lightly by any defendant. If you have been charged with arson it is important to quickly retain a criminal defense lawyer and begin defending such an accusation. The State of Florida has many laws punishing conduct for the various arson crimes. The most common arson crimes charged in Hillsborough county are:
