One of the most common crimes in Rhode Island is Disorderly Conduct. While this may seem like a minor crime, a disorderly conduct arrest is something you must take very seriously. Allow our attorneys to defend you so that your arrest for disorderly conduct doesn’t affect your future.
Disorderly Conduct, R.I. Gen. Law 11-45-1, is a broad statute that criminalizes various actions. Most often, individuals are charged with disorderly conduct for acting in a violent manner or disturbing others by making loud and unreasonable noise. Other actions that constitute disorderly conduct in RI include the use of offensive language that would provoke a violent reaction from others, obstructing a public way, interfering with a lawful meeting, or looking into the windows of others for a lascivious purpose. A conviction for disorderly conduct can result in imprisonment for up to six (6) months and/or a fine of up to $500.
