Free Legal Consultation on Criminal Charges in FL
Arrested for Disorderly Conduct? I sympathize, and understand what you are going through. Disorderly is often a catch all charge that is not supported by strong evidence. But you still need to take the charge seriously, since you want to make every effort to avoid a criminal conviction on your record, which can have significant consequences in your life.
An individual commits “disorderly conduct” if he/she behaves in such a way that his/her conduct creates a threat to the life or safety of other people.
Whether you got in a fight, created a disturbance, or somehow irritated a police officer, we will challenge these cases in court, and can often get them dismissed depending on the seriousness of the events.
Can I Fight a FL Disorderly Conduct Charge?
Yes, definitely. The standard for an arrest (or criminal summons) is subjective, and we can challenge the police officers statements and argue for a dismissal based on lack of evidence.
The most common argument is that your actions did not meet the standard of a “threat to the safely of other people” as required by Florida law.
Since disorderly conduct charges can cover a wide variety of behavior, the strategies we will use to fight it can vary considerably based on the facts of the case, and the witness testimony or other evidence against you. We will go over all this in your consultation.
