Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly conduct is often referred to as a breach of the peace. Disorderly conduct statutes give law enforcement a wide range of activities for which they may make arrests. Activities that “corrupt public morals,” for example, are included along with countless different circumstances. Florida law includes heavy fines and severe criminal penalties, including possible mandatory or minimum sentences of up to 25 years and maximum potential sentences of up to life.
