The word could be:

Conflagrate.

My prefix is not acquitted

If someone is not acquitted, they are considered by the state to be a convict, or a Con.

My infix demands respect

A Flag is to be respected.

My suffix is a price

A Rate is a synonym for price.

I burn what you can’t protect

Hence, Conflagrate, a synonym for catching fire.

Thanks to @DavidLewis for pointing out a flaw in my answer!
