Disorderly Conduct Defense Attorney
Charged with Disorderly Conduct
When law enforcement officers find a person who they consider is being disruptive, noisy, openly aggressive, intoxicated or displaying conduct that is considered to be detrimental, they could arrest and charge you with disorderly conduct. This law is used as a "catch-all" for law enforcement and could be used to arrest a person who is panhandling or loitering, or engaging in activities that the police determine are illegal such as prostitution or public lewdness. If you or a loved one has been charged with this misdemeanor, it is important that you get legal representation from a Los Angeles disorderly conduct defense lawyer at once. A conviction for this offense will show on your criminal record and can affect you in the future if you are arrested for some other offense, or when seeking a job.
