Pinellas County Public Order Crimes Attorney
Have an Experienced St. Petersburg / Clearwater Public Order Crimes Lawyer on Your Side
Offenses that are classified as “Public Order” crimes are those that directly relate to the orderly functioning of society. Because such offenses commonly impact other members of the community, the Pinellas County State Attorney’s Office vigorously prosecutes such offenses, often as a deterrent to others from engaging in similar conduct.
Types of Public Order Charges in Florida
- Disorderly Conduct

- Resisting Arrest Without Violence
- Resisting Arrest With Violence
- Unlicensed Contracting
- Giving False Information to Law Enforcement
- False Report of a Crime
There are a number of ways that a prosecution may be initiated for a Public Order offense. Most commonly, the subject can be arrested and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. In some cases, the individual is issued a “Notice to Appear” or mailed a “Summons” to appear before a County Court Judge at the Pinellas County Justice Center.
