Public Order

The more commonly charged offences involving ‘Public Disorder’, are contained within the Public Order Act 1986, and include:

  • Riot (Section 1)
  • Violent Disorder (Section 2)
  • Affray (Section 3)
  • Threatening Behaviour (Section 4)
  • Abusive or Insulting Behaviour (Section 5)

As with offense of violence, an individual may have been a victim of behaviour and only acted in a manner described so as to protect themselves or another, in short therefore, as much as they have acted as described and therefore at first glance, committed an offence, the person in question may have also acted in self-defence and therefore is not guilty of the charge.

It should also be noted that offences that are deemed to be racially aggravated, are sentenced more harshly.
