Delaware Public Intoxication Lawyers

Delaware Drunk In Public Laws

A person is guilty of public intoxication when the person appears in a public place manifestly under the influence of alcohol or narcotics or any other drug not administered or prescribed to be taken by a physician, to the degree that the person may be in danger or endanger other persons or property, or annoy persons in the vicinity.
Public intoxication is a violation unless the accused has been convicted of public intoxication twice before within 1 year, in which case the offense is an unclassified misdemeanor.

Why Hire A Delaware Drunk In Public Attorney

Being arrested for being drunk in public can be embarrassing. It can also be very costly as you may face fines, court costs, and other financial consequences resulting from your drunk in public charges. Attempting to defend yourself, or pleading guilty without an attorney, can make the situation worse. It is a wise move to enlist the aid of an experienced Delaware Criminal Defense Attorney that is experienced in defending those charged with being Drunk In Public.
