Riverside Disorderly Conduct Cases
Have you been charged with disorderly conduct?
There are many actions considered disorderly conduct, including public
drunkenness, fighting, inciting a riot, and
trespassing which may fall under this offense. It is often used as a "catch-all"
crime to cover numerous types of behavior when no other charge will serve.
When someone is not being a danger to the public, but is acting in a disruptive
manner, he or she may be charged with the crime of disorderly conduct.
Police and state prosecutors may be over-reaching when they view some
acts as being criminal. Though acts such as yelling at someone in a restaurant,
playing loud music, or making an obscene gesture may be bad manners, they
may not constitute a crime. Some examples of disorderly conduct charges are:
- Disturbing the peace
- Public drunkenness
- Loitering in certain places
- Having a physical altercation
- Obstructing traffic
- Use of obscene or abusive language
- Loud or unreasonable noise
If you have been charged with disorderly conduct, a Riverside criminal
defense attorney from Grech & Packer will provide the competent representation
you need to fight your disorderly conduct charges.
Penalties for Disorderly Conduct Offenses
The offense of disorderly conduct is considered a misdemeanor. When you
are not guilty of a crime, however, spending up to 90 days in jail, having
to pay a $400 fine, being put on probation, and ending up with a criminal
record is a serious thing and not to be taken lightly. We will defend
your disorderly conduct charges with the same commitment and dedication
that we would put into a high profile felony case. You will always be
a priority to us. We will fight to preserve your rights and your freedom,
no matter the severity of your offense.
