DEFENSE AGAINST PUBLIC ORDER OFFENCES
Football arouses passion like no other sport; it is therefore natural to love your team and show your support. However, the many stringent rules surrounding football matches could see you in trouble with the police for what you would assume to be harmless actions. Therefore, obtaining legal advice as early as possible in such situations is a must.
DO YOU NEED ADVICE?
The laws regulating spectator behaviour at and around football stadiums on match days are numerous and strict. Arrests can be made for things such as:
- displaying banners others might find offensive,
- throwing objects,
- taking flares or fireworks to a match,
- entering prohibited areas,
- being drunk at the ground,
- or even carrying alcohol in a vehicle travelling to a match.
As well as the above, swearing or yelling could see you arrested for a public order offence if someone feels threatened by what you say. You can also be arrested for a public order offence if you are found to be using or threatening violence and/or damaging property.
We understand how distressing it can be to find yourself accused of a crime for what at the time may be seemingly harmless behaviour. Especially at a place whereby such behaviours are somewhat expected.
The specialist Criminal Defence Team at Taylor Rose is highly experienced at defending a wide range of football-related offences including:
- public order offences;
- alcohol offences;
- firework offences; or
- stadium offences.
If you are convicted of a football-related offence, the Courts can impose a banning order which can last up to 10 years. Such orders can see you banned from the vicinity of all specified football grounds. The order could also see you banned from pubs and even public transport. We can help you apply to the Court for the early release from a football banning order.
