Wayne County Arsons

Posted By Rogan Law || 19-Sep-2011

Third Arson in One Month in Wayne County.


Arson is a serious crime classified as a felony under most statutes, punishable by severe imprisonment or even death where a fire has been intentionally deadly. Many jurisdictions impose prison sentences commensurate with the seriousness of the criminal intent of the accused. A finding, therefore, that arson had been committed intentionally would result in a longer prison sentence than a finding that it had been done recklessly. Where a human life has been endangered, the penalty is most severe.

The Scranton Times-Tribune reports that an abandoned building in Wayne County was intentionally set on fire and that it was the third arson in three weeks in Wayne County. All of the fires were set in the early morning hours, but the police have not ruled the three arsons connected at this time.
