We have obtained a not guilty verdict for one of our clients who was charged with disorderly conduct. The criminal complaint alleged that our client acted in an unreasonable manner in that our client interfered with a school board meeting by yelling loudly towards the school board and continued to disrupt the meeting after being advised to stop the disruption, thereby provoking a breach of the peace.

During a bench trial, our attorneys successfully used a video of the school board meeting to discredit the testimony of the school district’s superintendent and the school board president, who were the complaining witnesses. As a result, the court found that the State failed to prove our client guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
