Criminal Lawyer for Disorderly Conduct Charges

Disorderly conduct is a very common and a broadly defined offense in California. It includes many different acts that are interpreted as disruptions to public order. The following are the main reasons for a disorderly conduct arrest and charge:

  • Loitering
  • Begging
  • Peeping at a close range or with optical instruments
  • Squatting
  • Prostitution
  • Public Drunkenness

When you are arrested for disorderly conduct in violation of California Penal Code Section 647 it is important to contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney at Cron, Israels and Stark as soon as possible.
