Public Order Offences

Lenz Legal offers expert advice and representation for all public order offences.  Public Order offences contain an element of anti-social behaviour that is offensive, indecent or and causes disruption or offence to the general public.

Usually conducted in a public place, public order offences can include:

  • Use of obscene or offensive language
  • Drunkedness in a public place
  • Graffiti
  • Loitering
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Begging
  • Rioting
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Lighting of fires in the open air

This category of offences is arguably more open to interpretation than other aspects of criminal law. For example, the concept of a ‘public place’ carries with a wide range of definitions. And as the police can issue on the spot fines for some offences instead of placing formal charges or summoning an individual to appear in court, it is absolutely essential to maximise your outcome through obtaining advice from a specialist criminal lawyer.

Lenz Legal will provide expert advice and representation about matters relating to public order offences to help you determine your liability and your options in relation to a charge or infringement.  Call us now to see just what is possible.
