Brevard County Disorderly Conduct defense Attorneys
Have You Been Charged with Disorderly Conduct?
Disorderly conduct charges are very common in Florida. These types of charges can often be left to the discrepancy of police officers in the field, and therefore can leave you with many questions about the nature of your offense. Generally, disorderly conduct is used to describe a 'breach of the peace' punishable as a second-degree misdemeanor. Police officers must decide in the moment if an act is of a nature to corrupt public morals, outrage the sense of public decency, or affect the peace and quiet of persons who may witness them.
It is easy to see how an officer might be overzealous with these charges when annoyed, irritated, or can't think of another suitable offense to charge you with. Contact a Brevard County criminal defense attorney today if you are facing exaggerated disorderly conduct charges. An aggressive attorney from our firm will challenge the legitimacy of your 'threat' to the safety of others.
It is not uncommon for there to be a lack of strong evidence in a disorderly conduct charge, and we can use this as well as an officer's statements and witness testimony to build a solid case in your defense. In the heat of the moment, you may have used strong words in public or to an officer, but by law, your first amendment rights are protected, and it is possible that your charges may be dismissed with the help of a skilled lawyer.
