Disorderly Conduct: Breaching the Peace in Florida
Posted By:

You may have heard of “disorderly conduct” before, but you might not know exactly what qualifies as disorderly conduct here in Florida. And, as you’ll learn, if you’ve been charged with this crime, the law doesn’t necessarily require the support of particularly heinous facts to prove you were conducting yourself in a disorderly way.

 

Disorderly conduct is also referred to as breaching the peace. According to Florida law, you can be accused of this crime if you display one of many varied behaviors, such as:

 

  • Corrupting public morals
  • Outraging the sense of public decency
  • Affecting the peace
