Dallas Disorderly Conduct Attorney

In Texas, disorderly conduct is a crime that contemplates a wide array of alleged behavior.  Under the relevant statute, cited below, you can be charged with disorderly conduct if it’s alleged that you’ve engaged in any of the eleven prohibited actions that are listed.  These include: using offensive language, giving someone “the finger,” creating an “unreasonable” noise or odor, threatening or fighting someone in a public place, displaying or discharging a firearm (under certain circumstances), or exposing yourself in public.  Typically, disorderly conduct is considered a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by fine only of up to $500.  However, if the alleged act of disorderly conduct violates one of the firearm-related portions of the statute, it’s considered a Class B misdemeanor, for which the penalty range is up to 180 days in the county jail, and a fine of up to $2000 dollars.
