Disorderly conduct is a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in the county jail. Most often, disorderly conduct arrests are a result of a public fight or public argument where loud, offensive language is used.
To prove disorderly conduct the State must show that you:
- Committed an act that corrupts public morals; or
- you affected someone’s peace and quiet; or
- you engaged in a fight; or
- you breached the peace.
Officers often arrest people for a disorderly charge to try to diffuse situations before they get worse or to get rid of a person perceived as a nuisance. Disorderly charges often result due to disagreements that arise at public events. Tourists and visitors on spring break are often targeted with this charge. However, there are often valid defenses to a disorderly conduct charge. Don’t plea out!
Call the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel now at 407-218-6277 to discuss the possible defenses you have.
