Illegal Fireworks and Criminal Arson

Illegal Fireworks and Criminal Arson

Fireworks can be fun but setting off illegal fireworks is not. Each year during the Fourth of July holiday, people are arrested for selling, buying and manufacturing illegal fireworks. Some are charged with criminal arson after the fireworks they set off cause damage to property or personal injuries to other persons.

Even if you are using "Safe-N-Sane" fireworks, it is important to make sure you use them in an approved area. Keep in mind that illegal fireworks are even more dangerous and that an evening of celebration can potentially become a long-term problem.

If you are caught with illegal fireworks, law enforcement will confiscate the fireworks and issue a misdemeanor that may be punishable by up to $1,000 fine and/or one year of prison in a county jail. If the illegal fireworks cause a fire, users can be liable and billed for the cost of controlling the fire.

Since arson is a serious criminal offense, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer that understands arson laws and help guide you through the legal process. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help defend you against a criminal arson charge, which can mean the difference between a prison sentence and a dismissed charge.
