Arson and Criminal Mischief Punishments

Each of these types of crimes, Arson, Criminal Mischief, and Burning to Defraud an Insurer, carries a serious penalty, and a defendant in Florida will face an aggressive prosecution. Many people do not realize that Florida’s 10-20-Life law applies to the crime of Arson. That means that a person facing a first-degree felony arson charge could be serving a minimum of 10 or 20 years, and up to a maximum of 30 years or life. Prosecutors vigorously prosecute Arson and Criminal Mischief charges, as many Florida State Attorney’s Offices have a specialized arson unit dedicated to prosecuting these crimes. You should not face these charges alone.

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.
I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
