Gainesville Disorderly Conduct Lawyers

Providing Effective & Experienced Representation

If you have been charged with disorderly conduct, don’t worry; you are not alone. Disorderly conduct charges are among the most common misdemeanor charges due to their flexibility. Law enforcement officers will often arrest and charge individuals with disorderly conduct for a wide variety of reasons, including crowd control, even if no laws are being overtly violated.

The most common reasons a person may be charged with disorderly conduct include:

  • Fighting
  • Obstructing traffic
  • Being drunk in public
  • Loitering in certain areas
  • Using extremely abusive or obscene language
  • Making unreasonably loud noises after being asked to stop
  • To disrupt a group of individuals who have assembled in a lawful manner

Since disorderly conduct charges can be brought in a vast range of situations, they are frequently used to justify arrests where there was little probable cause for the arrest in the first place. As such, an experienced criminal defense attorney will be able to effectively fight any and all charges of disorderly conduct.

At Dunham & Ingram, our Gainesville disorderly conduct attorneys have an in-depth understanding of this specific area of law. Backed by decades of experience, our lawyers can effectively navigate you through the legal process while making sure your rights are fully protected. We will be with you every step of the way and aggressively fight for your future and freedom.

About Disorderly Conduct in Florida

Being charged with disorderly conduct means that the individual in question deprived other people of their right to peace and quiet, or disturbed the peace. Since the definition is so general, there are many possible defenses to these charges, including self-defense, the act did not occur in a public setting, and the First Amendment right to free speech.

The general penalties that you may face include:

  • Second-degree misdemeanor conviction
  • Imprisonment for up to 60 days
  • Fines of up to $500

However, if you are charged with inciting a riot or a public fight, the penalties may be more severe. Regardless of the circumstances or how serious the charges against you may be, we have the skill set needed to fight for you. You can trust our Gainesville criminal defense attorneys with all your legal needs.
