Disorderly conduct charges are so vague and ambiguous, many people could be committing acts that constitute the crime without even realizing it. Disorderly conduct, or "disturbing the peace," is often the charge arresting officers turn to when they are not sure what to charge you with.
This generalized offense can originate from:
- Loud arguments with the neighbors
- Raucous behavior in general
- Being impolite to police officers
At Martin & Wallentine, our Johnson County criminal defense attorneys have a deep respect for the police force in Kansas, but we also believe your constitutional rights and freedoms must be upheld.
If you have been arrested in a manner that violates your rights, contact our firm immediately for an initial consultation.
