FACTORS THAT EFFECT YOUR ARSON BOND RELEASE
Like other property crimes, intention, damages and injury are important factors when considering the severity of charges. In most cases, damage from arson is significant. If you are accused of arson with injury or death, you will likely be charged with first degree aggravated arson.
INTENTION AND FIRST DEGREE AGGRAVATED ARSON
As in other property crimes in Texas, the intention of the accused plays a pivotal role in determining the level of charges. If it is believed there was intent to harm a person or damage property, you may be charged with first-degree aggravated arson. Conviction can carry a life sentence, so clear intent is an important factor at your arson bond hearing. If there is no charge of malicious intent, then second or third-degree felony charges are appropriate, and a bond amount will be set.
DAMAGES AND INJURY
If damages are minimal and there is little or no intent, third-degree arson may be charged. Still, penalties include up to 15 years of incarceration, and $10,000 in fines. Restitution of damages may also be ordered in all cases of arson conviction.
