Despite the fact that people are supposed to have "freedom of speech," in actuality we walk a thin line between speaking our mind freely and legally and entering into the disorderly conduct zone. If you were arrested because you were allegedly engaging in threatening or violent behavior, or because you got into a heated argument with your spouse or partner in a domestic violence case, contact our Honolulu criminal derfense lawyer as soon as possible.
Attorney Bakke is not only a former prosecutor, but he has made over 6,000 court appearances over the past 20 years of his career. Whether you got into a fight with someone in a public place, or are being accused of playing your music too loudly at your party, you do not need the headache of a criminal conviction, even for a misdemeanor offense such as disorderly conduct.
Disorderly conduct in Hawaii is covered under Section 711-1101. Under this section, a person commits the offense of disorderly conduct if he or she:
Disorderly conduct is a petty misdemeanor, punishable by a term of imprisonment not to exceed 30 days.
Were you arrested after getting into a fight with your spouse or a family member? Or, were you involved in a verbal or physical altercation with another person? Just because you were arrested, it does not mean that it has to lead to a conviction. You do have rights under the law and it is vital that you invoke your rights!
If you are facing disorderly conduct charges, contact Honolulu Criminal Defense Attorney Victor Bakke for the aggressive legal representation you need and deserve. In a free case evaluation, he will evaluate the facts of your case and explain what defense strategies he would use to help you!
