Disorderly Conduct Law in California - Penal Code 647 PC
Disorderly conduct is a very common and 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:
- Peeping at a close range or with optical instruments
- Public Drunkenness
When you are arrested for disorderly conduct in violation of California Penal Code 647, it is important to contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney at Cron, Israels, and Stark as soon as possible.
A charge of this nature is filed as a misdemeanor and can lead to a mark on your permanent record, up to one year in jail, fines, and possible temporary loss of your license, depending on the circumstances.
Obstruction of Justice Law
Obstruction of justice is defined as any action that prevents or hinders the proper judicial process, the administration of the courts, law enforcement, or correctional actions. This could be as simple as non-violent resistance to arrest or as severe as lying while acting as a witness.
This includes bribing or threatening a witness, judge, lawyer, or law enforcement officer.
Other actions which can bring around the obstruction of justice charge are interference in an investigation, picketing and using a megaphone in front of the courts without a permit, tampering or hiding evidence, and lying while participating in a study.
Actions that interfere with or hinder the daily operations of any of the three branches of government can bring about obstruction of justice charge.
If you are being charged with obstruction of justice, you must contact us. Obstruction of justice can be filed as a misdemeanor or felony, and you can face considerable jail time and fines, and a permanent criminal record.
Asset Forfeiture In California
When you have been charged with certain criminal offenses in Los Angeles, you may suffer forfeiture of your assets by the police. These types of crimes can include drug charges, organized crime offenses, and charges related to racketeering, including gambling, prostitution, robbery, extortion, arson, kidnapping, and even murder.
Although your property is not supposed to be forfeited unless you are convicted, many law enforcement officials will seize the property when you are arrested. To fight for your rights to your property, discuss your case with our experienced criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles.
We are well-versed in making a solid case to defend the underlying charges and pursue the return of your seized assets.
The criminal offenses resulting in property forfeiture can lead to officials seizing such valuables as jewelry, money, cars, homes, bank accounts, and other personal assets.
The purpose of this law was originally to cover the expense of drug enforcement and racketeering activities, but it has become abused by law enforcement.
When your bank accounts and all of your assets are seized, it can become tough to pay your regular expenses, increasing the complications of such a case.
