Disorderly Conduct 

Explained by a San Diego Criminal Lawyer

"Disorderly conduct" is a catch-all for unruly behavior that would otherwise constitute a minor offense. Therefore, many types of conduct may be considered "disorderly conduct," including: repeated swearing and violent outbursts at a teacher, "toilet papering," somebody's house (also likely vandalism), and when protesting - when police are sick of protestors or want to clear a public area - disorderly conduct is often the justification or issued citation.

 

Fighting on School Property

Cal. Penal Code § 415.5

This offense is a misdemeanor, and penalties include a fine of up to $400, up to 90 days in jail, or both. Increased penalties may apply to second and subsequent convictions

 

Disorderly Conduct - Fighting/Offensive Words

Cal. Penal Code § 647

It is a crime in California to fight, or challenge someone to fight, in a public place; to purposefully disturb another person with loud and unreasonable noise; and to use offensive words in a public place that are inherently likely to provoke an immediate violent reaction.

 

Disorderly conduct is catch-all for bad juvenile behavior, and a misdemeanor. Penalties for disorderly conduct include a fine of up to $1,000, up to six months in jail, or both. There may be increased penalties for second and subsequent convictions.

 

Unlawful Protesting

Cal. Penal Code § 404

It is illegal for two or more people to assemble to disturb the peace and refuse to comply with a lawful order by a law enforcement officer to disperse.

 

Refusal to disperse after a lawful police order is a misdemeanor. Penalties include court costs, fines, restitution (paying for damage caused by the crime) or community service.
