Torrance Public Intoxication Lawyer

We Handle Cases Throughout the South Bay and Los Angeles County

Under California Penal Code section 647(f), public intoxication is a misdemeanor criminal charge. If you are convicted of this charge, it will appear on your criminal record. In some cases, a public intoxication charge accompanies other significant charges, such as assault and battery. An added public intoxication charge can make any other separate charge much more serious.

There are a number of defenses to public intoxication charges available, and an experienced attorney can prepare a strong defense that is suited to your specific case. Our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers will carefully review the event in question and investigate the statements of any witnesses present at the scene. If we are able to prove that you were sober enough to provide the police with your personal information and to interact with them, that is a very good indication of your innocence.

Public intoxication may be viewed as a minor criminal charge, but you can be assured that our attorneys take it very seriously. We are ready to fight for you and your rights. Your case will be entirely handled by an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney.
