Second Degree Arson After the 4th of July in Jefferson County, Colorado

Jefferson County Second Degree Arson by Fireworks

The 4th of July is a celebration of fun. Fireworks remain a central part of this national holiday, even if the government is trying to shut them down. No, Jefferson County government, we don't want your perfect world where no one is injured, because no one has any fun.

Fourth Degree Arson charges were filed recently against two men who were camping and allegedly failed to completely extinguish their fire. The campfire was later whipped by high winds and embers blown to nearby brush which ignited. The fire burned nearly 600 acres in Boulder County.

The biggest concern these men may face is millions of dollars of restitution for the losses caused by the fire.

Arson is essentially setting fire to the property of another. When someone is charged with the crime, they need an attorney who will help protect their rights and fight for their freedom. Fire crimes are multi-tiered criminal offenses which can be charged as any one of four crimes; First Degree Arson (C.R.S. 18-4-102), Second Degree Arson (C.R.S. 18-4-103), Third Degree Arson (C.R.S. 18-4-104), and Fourth Degree Arson (C.R.S. 18-4-105).
