Charges of Arson in Boise, Idaho
According to Idaho law, arson is broken up into three different degrees based upon the exact details of crime and the severity of the crime in question.

This is usually punishable by up to twenty five years spent in the custody of the department of corrections and a fine up to $100,000.
Second-degree arson is a crime where the accused willfully sets fire to a structure, no matter if the structure is their own property or not, and is punishable by up to fifteen years spent in the custody of the department of correction and a fine up to $75,000.
