Public Order Offenses

What Are Public Order Offenses?

Public order offenses refer to criminal acts that alter the good public order and offend not only a particular victim but also the public at large. In Massachusetts, there are many categories of public order offenses, including threats to commit crime, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, carrying a dangerous weapon and possession of fireworks.

What Happens If I Am Found Guilty?

If you are convicted of a public order offense, you may be subjected to significant fines, long-term probation or lengthy jail sentences.
