If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for disorderly intoxication in violation of Florida Statute 856.011 the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel can help. We are available 24/7 at 407-218-6277 to discuss your case with you.
To prove the charge of disorderly intoxication the State must show that you were:
- Intoxicated and
- endangering the safety of other people or property or
- that you were drinking in public and causing a public disturbance.
Disorderly intoxication is a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail. If you are convicted of disorderly intoxication 3 times in one year, the court can send you to a mandatory rehabilitation facility for up to 60 days.
Disorderly intoxication charges usually result from bar fights or disagreements that occur at public events where alcohol is served. Tourists and spring breakers can end up with a disorderly charge while vacationing in the area. Many times an arrest is made because you are drunk and loud. But that may not be enough. Before you plea, call a knowledgeable attorney at Finebloom & Haenel to discuss your possible defenses. We are available for consultations 24/7 by calling 407-218-6277.
