    Miami Disorderly Conduct Attorney

    Providing Personalized & Relentless Representation

    According to Florida law, disorderly conduct is a criminal offense that involves a person acting in such a way as to constitute a “breach of the peace.” Occasionally, it may be difficult to differentiate between acts which may be exercising your freedom of speech and those which may constitute disorderly conduct.

    The following are some examples of acts which may classify as disorderly conduct:

    • Fighting or brawling
    • Acts that outrage the sense of public decency
    • Acts of a nature so as to corrupt public morals
    • Acts that affect the peace and quiet of those who witness them

    If a person is convicted, they may face jail and/or large fines. That’s why it is imperative to contact a skilled criminal defense attorney in Miami if you are facing these charges.

    What Is Considered Disturbing the Peace in Florida?

    In Florida, disturbing the peace is considered a disorderly conduct. When convicted of such an event, it is considered a second-degree misdemeanor. Penalties for such a conviction can include probation, jail time, and a permanent criminal record.
