Arson Charges in Washington
There are three primary offenses related to arson under Washington legislation. It is important to remember, that in all of these cases, the prosecuting attorney must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime. It may only take a single instance of a violation of your rights or mishandled evidence to build sufficient doubt that secures an acquittal or even a dismissal of arson charges altogether. When you work with a Bellevue arson defense lawyer at our firm, our goal will be to find that doubt and expose it for what it is, thus positively impacting the outcome of your case.
We handle the following arson charges in Bellevue and across King County:
- First Degree Arson
- Second Degree Arson
- Reckless Burning
When dealing with arson charges, a valid defense may be that the property was destroyed or damaged for a lawful purpose. Another defense may be that no other person other than the defendant had any type of interest in or authority over the affected property (or that such persons gave consent to the defendant’s conduct). If these apply to your case, we can use this to your advantage.
