Mesa Public Urination Attorneys

Strong Defense for Those Charged with Urinating in a Public Place in the State of Arizona

Although it might seem harmless to urinate in a secluded, dark area, some cities in Arizona consider public urination a crime. If a police officer sees you violating the public urination laws, you can receive a citation. This should not be taken lightly, as you are being charged with a criminal offense.

If you have been charged with urinating in public, turn to McPhie Law. Our Mesa criminal defense lawyers know how to effectively investigate your case and present your side of the story to a judge to try to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether.

To discuss your case with one of our skilled criminal defense attorneys during a free consultation, call (480) 771-7977 today or contact us online.

Penalties for Urinating in Public

In Arizona, urinating in public is classified as a Class 1 misdemeanor. The City of Scottsdale, in particular, is very aggressive in their enforcement of this law. In many cases, the police sit on back roads, in alleyways, or throughout the downtown area on bikes in search of those who are violating public urination laws.

Those convicted of public urination could face several potential consequences, including:

  • A minimum fine of $150
  • A maximum prison sentence of 6 months
  • Restitution for cleanup costs incurred by the city
  • Community service
  • A conviction on your criminal record

How to Beat a Public Urination Charge

If you have been given a citation for urinating in public, you can fight your charges. In many cases, there is insufficient or incomplete evidence to prove that an accused individual is guilty. It is crucial to know what evidence the police and prosecution team have against you. Our attorneys can perform a thorough investigation to find out. Once we understand what you are up against, we can formulate a strong defense plan to take your case to trial.
