Arson is the criminal intentional lighting of a fire for some nefarious purpose, be it the destruction of property or to harm someone else. In Georgia, arson is a serious crime that can have huge legal repercussions.
You Didn’t Start the Fire
Arson is a tricky charge to defend against. Mistaken identity is often a strong defense. It can be difficult to prove beyond doubt that a person was the one who committed the crime, particularly without eyewitness accounts.
If the prosecution has proof that you lit the fire yourself, then it may be prudent to attack the motive for lighting the fire. An arson conviction requires the prosecution to prove motive. Often this comes in the form of an insurance payment or some other financial motivation. If the motive can be dismantled, the case falls apart.
