In Arizona, an individual arrested for disorderly conduct may face misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the circumstances of the case. A conviction can have serious consequences including monetary penalties and imprisonment. If you are facing charges of disorderly conduct, the Ramos Law Firm can provide you with the best possible legal defense.

Disorderly Conduct in Arizona (ARS §13-2904)

Under Arizona law, disorderly conduct occurs when an individual, with intent or knowledge, disturbs the peace or quiet of a neighborhood, family or person by engaging in fighting, or violent or seriously disruptive behavior. Disorderly conduct includes making unreasonable noise or using abusive or offensive language or gestures to any person in a way that will likely provoke immediate physical retaliation by that person.

An individual can also be charged with disorderly conduct for refusing a lawful order to disperse issued by authorities to maintain public safety in an emergency. An individual who is being arrested and engages in fighting, being abusive or disturbing the peace can be charged with disorderly conduct as well as resisting arrest. There are other types of behavior or situations that can result in an individual being charged with disorderly conduct.

Misdemeanor and Felony Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly conduct can lead to misdemeanor or felony charges. If the conduct involves the use of a deadly weapon, like a gun, knife or other harmful instrument, an individual will be charged with a felony. In this situation, an individual faces mandatory jail time and other factors like prior offenses or other felony convictions could lead to longer prison sentences. If there is no weapon involved, an individual faces misdemeanor charges that can have serious consequences, including monetary penalties and the potential for imprisonment and/or probation.

How the Ramos Law Firm Can Defend a Disorderly Conduct Charge

While each case is different, one factor in developing a legal defense strategy includes the mental state of the defendant. An individual who did not intend to disturb the peace, or who was not aware that he or she was doing so, may have a valid defense. Mr. Ramos will use his expertise to weigh the evidence of the case and determine if there are other mitigating factors, such as whether or not the defendant was provided with a Miranda warning.

Mr. Ramos is a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law and he has extensive knowledge of the court system. He can develop the best possible trial strategy to defend your disorderly conduct case. If you have been arrested for disorderly conduct in the state of Arizona, call the Ramos Law Firm today.
