Disorderly Conduct - Arapahoe and Douglas County Lawyer - Any Way, Any Time, Any Place, Anyone

Disorderly-Conduct-Charges.jpgDisorderly Conduct Lawyer for False Allegations

The crime of Disorderly Conduct is charged loosely in Douglas and Arapahoe County, based on false allegations and false reporting. I say "loosely" because it is a broadly written law, designed to act as a catch all crime. Police Officers will ask their allaged victim questions directed to support false charges.  When police can't figure what else to charge someone with, they frequently chose Disorderly Conduct. Let's look at the definition of Disorderly Conduct, and then you'll see what I mean. Read about Disorderly Conduct and a gun in Pueblo.

Definition of Disorderly Conduct in Jefferson County - An Attorney Explains

Across Jefferson County, in places like Lakewood, Golden and Arvada, the definition of Disorderly Conduct - C.R.S. 18-9-106, is:

"A person commits disorderly conduct if he or she intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly:

(a) Makes a coarse and obviously offensive utterance, gesture, or display in a public place and the utterance, gesture, or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace; or

(c) Makes unreasonable noise in a public place or near a private residence that he has no right to occupy; or

(d) Fights with another in a public place except in an amateur or professional contest of athletic skill; or

(e) Not being a peace officer, discharges a firearm in a public place except when engaged in lawful target practice or hunting or the ritual discharge of blank ammunition cartridges as an attendee at a funeral for a deceased person who was a veteran of the armed forces of the United States; or

(f) Not being a peace officer, displays a deadly weapon, displays any article used or fashioned in a manner to cause a person to reasonably believe that the article is a deadly weapon, or represents verbally or otherwise that he or she is armed with a deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm."

Particularly with subsections (c) and (d), police often turn to Disorderly Conduct accusations. A large percentage of the crimes we see charged involve fighting and noise (yelling). Even if there is no victim to cite, subsection (c) is a favorite of the Arvada and Lakewood Police.

Adams County Lawyer for False Accusations of Disorderly Conduct

In Adams County cities like Brighton, Thornton and Northglenn, police charge Disorderly Conduct frequently. Men and women are either given a summons or arrested. Then, they must come to court and defend themselves from false allegations. Your criminal defense lawyer in Adams County Court can do a much better job if you have not given any statements to police. Officers love it when our clients talk, so they can get statements admitting to the definition of Disorderly Conduct. These statements show up on court on police reports, or in recordings from officer body cameras and recorders. Questions like did you slap, hit or threaten your girlfriend seal the deal for them in many ways. It is difficult for someone to say they never touched their former lover when that person is recorded admitting to the physical contact.

Never speak to police and call us before discussing your case with anyone. Remain silent. It is your constitutional right to do so. This is the very best way to be found not guilty from false accusations. Next, call the top Denver area Criminal Defense Attorneys about your false allegations at 303-731-0719 today. Together, we can protect your future.
