Disorderly Conduct Defense Attorney in San Antonio

Energetic Defense Against Disorderly Conduct Charges

Disorderly conduct charges cover a wide range of offensive conduct in public places.  Most are charged as a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a $500 fine.   The exceptions are for brandishing or firing a weapon in a public place which is Class B misdemeanor.  For these you may have to spend up to 180 days in jail and pay a fine of $2,000. If you have been arrested for disorderly conduct you are urged to contact domestic violence attorney in San Antonio John J. Fox for effective defense.

Disorderly Conduct Charges

Disorderly conduct includes using abusive language in public likely to provoke a fight, commonly known as "fighting words."  You may also be charged for using obscene gestures likely to start a fight or threatening another in an offensive way.  You may be arrested for exposing genitals or anus in a reckless manner.  Persons may also be taken into custody for making unreasonable amounts of noise in a public place or in another's home or using chemicals to create offensive odors.  People getting in a fight may be charged.  Peeking into another's home, motel room or dressing room for lewd purposes is also chargeable.  Displaying a gun to threaten others or discharging a gun is the most serious disorderly conduct charge.

Unlike most misdemeanor charges, the police may arrest a suspect based on reports of others; they need not observe the incident themselves.
