Massachusetts Disorderly Conduct Attorney
Disorderly conduct is an offense that involves a person engaging in fighting or threatening, or engaging in violent or tumultuous behavior or creating a hazardous or physically offensive condition by an act that served no legitimate purpose of the defendant’s. The person’s actions must have been intended to either cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly created a risk of public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm.
At times it may be difficult to distinguish acts which may simply be exercising your freedom of speech and those which may constitute disorderly conduct. Asking a police officer a question or speaking your mind may turn into a circumstance where you are facing criminal charges simply because an officer wants to demonstrate his or her authority over you and the situation. The attorneys at the Law Office of Michael J. Brothers are familiar with handling criminal charges involving disorderly conduct. We can help determine if these charges meet the elements of the statute or, for example, were filed in violation of your First Amendment right to free speech. If that is the case, we can use this in your favor to possibly have your charges dropped or to secure an acquittal on your behalf.
