Can you Go to Jail for Disorderly Conduct?

Friday / July 29, 2016

In Arizona, disorderly conduct is considered a class 1 misdemeanor and penalties could include a fine up to $2,500 and up to six months in jail, or both. If you, or someone you love, has been charged with disorderly conduct, it’s imperative that you consult with a qualified, experienced Tempe criminal defense attorney right away.


You might be asking yourself, what exactly is considered disorderly conduct? Disorderly conduct charges can be vague and broad. It’s one of the reasons you’ll want a solid defense strategy in place when facing a disorderly conduct charge. Charges usually involve unruly conduct such as:


  • Engaging in fighting
  • Violent or threatening behavior
  • Making an unreadable noise
  • Using abusive or obscene language
  • Making an obscene gesture in a public place
  • Unlawfully disturbing a lawful business
  • Refusing to comply with a lawful police order to disperse
