Boca Winds Teen Arrested – Arson

West Boca teenager Nicholas “Nick” DeSalvo was arrested yesterday on six counts of arson, along with two other minor charges after being caught on a home security camera and monitor system. As of this writing it appears he is being held and has not seen a judge yet for a bail determination. He will have to wait for a court date to see if he will be charged with a misdemeanor (criminal mischief or destruction of property) or a felony as arson can both depending on the jurisdiction as well as the charges. If you find yourself awaiting court as something like this has happened to you, you might be interested in someone like this philadelphia criminal lawyer that might be able to help you with your case.
Our research suggests that Nick is the son of Rob and Valerie DeSalvo of the Boca Winds development and Practical Marketing Inc. Nick may have an interest in computer programming.
Nick has been 18 for about a month. We are guessing he’s a high school senior. It is unclear whether the alleged arsons took place before his 18th birthday and whether that might affect youthful offender treatment. And of course under the law he is innocent at this point.
West Boca News extends our best wishes to the DeSalvo family. We hope their neighbors and friends will support them through this difficult time.
