    Angry NJ Arson ?

    OK, this is an actual story from my event filled trip to New Jersey this summer. My last nite there, there was a party at my place of employment, for the end of the summer. After the party, my date and I were enjoying the beach scene at about 2300. As I lean in for a kiss, I see a flash, and fireball come from the nearby lifeguard stand. Her, being an off-duty Lifeguard, and me, LG-EMT and Firefighter-Cadet, run to the stand, as 2 young males run off fromit, laughing and looking back. A boardwalk cop catches one, and I run the other one down (yea yea I know, I shouldnt have, but it ****ed me off) My question is, what charges will these Mutts face for setting fire to a Beach Patrol Lifeguard stand. It would have been used in the morning, but a new one was delivered. Both firebugs were under 18.

    Criminal Mischief. Arson charges only pertain to structures (very loosely defined in the NJ Burglary statutes). The degree of crime will depend onthe value of a lifeguard stand. My guess is its under $500. So it is going to be a disorderly person offense. No past record and they walk out with a fine and restitution. If they **** the judge off, 5 days in the County Jail, but I highly doubt it.
