as it can contribute to brush fires, which can grow out of control and
cost lives and money in drier areas of the state. Likewise, the circumstances
of the crime will dictate what kind of punishment you may receive. For
example, if you are convicted of arson of a structure or forest land,
you would be guilty of a felony crime.

Felony arson charges could result in imprisonment for 2 to 6 years, while
simple arson of property that isn’t your own personal property can
lead to a felony charge, which requires 16 months to 3 years in prison.
A crime that causes an inhabited structure or inhabited property to burn
is a felony punishable by 3 to 8 years in state prison. Aggravated arson
is a felony that can lead to imprisonment for up to 10 years. Even attempting
arson can earn you a prison sentence of up to 3 years. Likewise, no matter
the level of arson you are convicted of, you can also face up to $50,000 in fines.
