It cannot be stressed the seriousness of these allegations and that this individual needs to seek the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Arson, in general, is a class 2 felony punishable by 3-7 years in prison. Now, if I am understanding this correctly, she was found guilty of the arson charge and is awaiting sentencing and must still deal with the residential burglary charge. Residential burglary is a class 1 felony, punishable by 4-15 years in prison.
If she is found not guilty of the residential burglary, she is looking at a minimum of 3 years since she was convicted of the arson and up to a maximum of 7 years.
If she is found guilty of the residential burglary charge, she is looking at a minimum of 7 years (3 for arson + 4 for residential burglary) and a maximum of 22 years.
There are ways a good attorney can mitigate, perhaps avoid trial on the residential burglary charge, and get this individual a better deal than going to trial and possibly losing. I would contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.
