Phoenix Disorderly Conduct Attorneys
Are you facing a Disorderly Conduct Charge?
Depending on the allegations, Disorderly Conduct can be charged as a class six (6) felony or a class one (1) misdemeanor. To be charged with disorderly conduct there needs to be an allegation of having the intent to disturb the peace or quiet of a neighborhood, family or person, or with knowledge of doing so; and such person:
1. Engages in fighting, violent or seriously disruptive behavior
2. Makes unreasonable noise
3. Uses abusive or offensive language or gestures to any person present in a manner likely to provoke immediate physical retaliation by such person
4. Makes any protracted commotion, utterance or display with the intent to prevent the transaction of the business of a lawful meeting, gathering or procession
5. Refuses to obey a lawful order to disperse issued to maintain public safety in dangerous proximity to a fire, a hazard or any other emergency
6. Recklessly handles, displays or discharges a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument
In order to have the allegations charged as a class six (6) felony, an allegation of dangerousness will need to be filed with the charge. This would mean that there was use of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument. If charged as a felony, you could be facing a jail term of 1.5 years to 3 years for a first offense, 3 years to 4.5 years with one historical dangerous prior, and 4.5 years to 6 years with two historical dangerous priors.
If charged as a class (1) misdemeanor you could be facing up to six (6) months jail, probation, and fines/fees up to $2,500.00 with an 80% surcharge.
