Crimes against public order are defined as a violation which involves interfering with the normal operation of society and date back to early modern civilizations. Once referred to as victimless crimes, this term has become less accepted of late due to the secondary victims who are impacted including friends, families and society in general. Most crimes against public order are considered general intent crimes and are usually associated with efforts to improve the quality of life for society as a whole. Some of the many violations which fall under this offense include sex or substance related offenses as well as public nuisances and indecencies. Further examples include unlawful assembly, fighting, riot or even disturbing the peace, interfering with a lawful meeting, false reports and failure to register as a sex offender.
Legal penalties relating to crimes against public order vary depending on the severity of the crime. Penalties may range from misdemeanor charges as is common with charges such as disorderly conduct to more severe fines with prison sentences and felony charges. As with all crimes, crimes against public order may easily result in severe consequences.
