Your Rights. Your Future. Your Freedom.

Arrested For Urinating In Public?

After you sober up, it can seem amusing or embarrassing to have been arrested for urinating in public. But having a conviction for that offense on your record can have long-term consequences. Though the actual penalty you incur may not be significant, you may be excluded from certain occupations, particularly those involving children.

If you have received a public urination ticket or been arrested for another alcohol-related crime, you should think twice about pleading guilty. I am J.B. Katz, a defense advocate with extensive experience in so-called “nuisance” crimes such as public urination, public intoxication and disorderly conduct. As your attorney, I can work to minimize the consequences of the charge and if possible, obtain either a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a lesser charge that carries less stigma. After the resolution of your case, I may be able to obtain an expungement or sealing of your record, which can prevent potential employers from learning about the event.

Protect Your Future, Get Legal Representation

I can represent you on a public urination charge without your need to appear in court. You can be assured that while I am representing you, your rights and interests will be protected. Whenever possible, I will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge. Alternatively, I can seek to negotiate a disorderly conduct charge instead. This charge carries far less stigma, and it will be much easier to explain this away if you are ever asked about it. A small investment in legal fees now can help you avoid problems down the road.
