Premier Phoenix Domestic Violence Disorderly Conduct Defense Attorney

Phoenix Domestic Violence Disorderly Conduct Lawyer

The crime of disorderly conduct can also be charged under a wide variety of circumstances in Phoenix, Arizona. The law states that disorderly conduct is committed if, with intent to disturb the peace or quiet of a neighborhood, family or person, or with knowledge of doing so, such person:

1. Engages in fighting, violent or seriously disruptive behavior; or

2. Makes unreasonable noise; or

3. Uses abusive or offensive language or gestures to any person present in a manner likely to provoke immediate physical retaliation by such person; or

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; or

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; or

6. Recklessly handles, displays or discharges a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.

Again, depending on whether a weapon is involved, whether a gun, knife, a piece of broken glass, or even a thrown beverage container, the offense can be charged as a felony and the individual could potentially face a mandatory prison sentence if convicted.

Because it is defined so broadly, police officers and prosecutors in Phoenix, Arizona commonly use a disorderly conduct charge to justify an arrest even when nothing more that a typical family argument has occurred.  Unfortunately, the staggering number of Phoenix domestic violence homicides has contributed to the pressure placed on police officers to make an arrest if called out to a family fight.  All too often, individuals in Phoenix are accused of "making unreasonable noise" or "engaging in seriously disruptive behavior" in their own home, and charged with this offense.
