Arson

Given the threat to life and property often involved in arson cases, Los Angeles prosecutors vigorously prosecute defendants accused of arson.

California law prohibits the willful and malicious setting of fire to the property of another.

However, it also criminalizes recklessly setting fire to the property of another. If you are accused of setting fire to your own property, you can only be convicted if the purpose was fraudulent, as in the case of attempting to collect insurance proceeds, or if the fire injures another person or his or her property.
