Public Order Offences Solicitors


Filed under section 4A of the Public Order Act 1986, a person can be found accused of Intentional Harassment, Alarm or Distress if they are found to have intended to cause such offence by the use of words, behaviour or written signs and other representations.

An offence under this section may be committed in a public or a private place, except that no offence is committed where the words or behaviour are used, or the writing, sign or other visible representation is displayed, by a person inside a dwelling and the person who is harassed, alarmed or distressed is also inside that or another dwelling.

A person guilty of an offence under this section is liable on summary conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale or both.
