Minneapolis Disorderly Conduct Lawyer, St. Paul Brawling Defense Attorney
Disorderly conduct is generally an act which tends to “alarm, anger or disturb others, or tends to provoke an assault or breach of peace.” Disorderly conduct is also an offense in which a person recklessly, knowingly or intentionally does one or more of the following:
- Engages in brawling or fighting
- Commits indecent conduct and exposure
- Disturbs an assembly or meeting, not unlawful in its character
- Engages in offensive, obscene, abusive, boisterous, or noisy conduct
- Engages in offensive, obscene or abusive language reasonably arousing alarm, anger or resentment in others
Disorderly conduct is a common alleged offense in Minnesota because it takes very little to be charged. If convicted of a disorderly conduct charge, a defendant can face up to 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
Disorderly Conduct Charges Can Be False
Have you or someone you know been arrested for simply telling your side of the story? Were you arrested for being noisy? Were you involved in a brawl? Our disorderly conduct defense lawyer understands these charges are often ridiculous. Police officers are notorious for lodging disorderly conduct citations against people for actions not truly deserving of such charges. Our law firm holds police officers accountable for violating your rights and will help you overcome an unjustified and outrageous charge.
