Yes. It is usually cited as "Being Intoxicated In The Public Way" just like you wrote, or can be a part of other offenses. All state, and even all cities, have a public intoxication law; some are different than others; but always being drunk in public is an offense.
crime in the UK is very bad because most of the time people always die or end up with lots of injuries. this is because there are always Guns,Knifes and other dangerous equipments involved.
it is an action that breaks the law, also when u don't follow the rules and breaks them .
There are so many ways that can happen but with so many people thinking they are better then others it makes it hard for it to happen. If there was a first time offender law stating that the first time you break the law as an adult as long as it isn't something real serious or major you are automati…cly forgivin after paying your debt to socioty that would have a MAJORE cut down on crime. Usually when crimes are committed its from a person that has been arrested before. And usually they end up doing the crime because there isn't that much left for you in the world if your a convicted felon unless you fight for it! Most of the time if someone gets in trouble for the first time and its something serious like a second degree felony, theres no way around that at all and your stuck so in order not too starve they do what they have to witch is sad in a way. Lack of education on this subject also plays a role too because most people don't learn the pros and cons on getting arrested until its too late. I was arrested a few years back and convicted on a third degree larceny charge. I thought life was over and everyone kept telling me that unless i can rap or sing or act the only job id be able to get is fast food or construction making 30,000 a year if im lucky and i didnt take that for an answer at all! 5 years later im a certified master mechanic and a part time real estate agent making over 100,000 annually. If you take it like a lesson like i did and fight to get to where you want to be like i did then nothings limited. And there are a mess of people also going around making false statements stating that if your a felon you cant do this and you cant do that when in fact that's not the case! There are doctors, lawyers and even cops that where convicted felons at one point in life. So do NOT let anyone tell you that you cant do this and you cant do that cause of one mistake. Learning from your mistake creates the big line between a criminal and a person who just made a mistake. If someone would take the time and talk to most of these kids before they go out and do something stupid then that would help also. But like i said with so many people thinking once you go to jail your trash, a law like that would never be able to pass unless a president in office says so. I am now filing to get a goveners pardon and im sure i can get it because i know i am rehabilitated and i am also well known in my community now because im one of the very few success stories that take the time and talk to the youth about these things. Its a sad world we live in and until they start listening to the people the violence in the street will never stop. ( Full Answer )

It is not a conduct crime, because the crime does not require proof of any act (or… omission); nor is it a result crime, as it does not require proof of any result/consequence of possession. Status crimes (sometimes also referred to as "situational" crimes) merely criminalise someone's status or situation (other examples taken from various statutes are being found drunk in a public place; being an illegal alien; being in possession of prohibited drugs).

Yes, it is. ----- Actually, no its not. In the UK there is no legal duty to be a hero and carry out acts of rescue. There may be a moral or public duty, but the law will not blame you if you do not act. However, in some specific cases, failing to render assistance can be manslaughter if the… person dies as a result. This happens when the potential rescuer is under a duty to act but does not. Such a duty might arise in many ways, for example, if you have care of a young person (parent or teacher), if you have taken on caring responsibilities for a sick person, if you are contracted to have a professional responsibility (e.g. as a doctor, paramedic, coastguard or many others), or are under a general legal duty (e.g. as a police officer). In these circumstances failing to render assistance can constitute manslaughter by gross negligence. It should be noted that even if people are under a duty, they are still not required to take risks with their own safety. For example, the duty to a sick person might be discharged just by calling an ambulance rather than by administering first-aid. ( Full Answer )
Yes, all arrest and court records are "public documents." In some areas, the local papers even publish this infomration in their regular editions.
Criminal trials in the UK are held either in the Magistrates' Court or in the Crown Court. In general serious crimes are tried in the Crown Court. This is because only the Crown Court has the power to impose a sentence of greater than six months (although the Magistrates may sentence for up to twe…lve months for a few offences in their courts). Whether a crime is serious enough to be tried in the Crown Court or should be tried in the Magistrates' Court is usually obvious, but in border-line cases it comes down to the opinion of the Magistrates - they decide whether to keep the case or 'commit for trial' in the Crown Court. Of course, in some really serious cases such as murder, the Magistrates must send the case straight to the Crown Court. These are called 'indictable only' offences because the process that gets the alleged criminal in front of the Crown Court is known as an 'indictment'. Just to make matters more complicated, the law also defines what is meant by 'serious crime' in Section 93(4) of the Police Act 1997 states that a 'serious crime' ... involves the use of violence, results in substantial financial gain or is conducted by a large number of persons in pursuit of a common purpose; or the offence is one, for which a person aged 21 years or over with no previous convictions could reasonably expect to receive a sentence of three years imprisonment or more. If the definition in Section 93(4) is met then the police are entitled to use more intrusive surveillance powers during the investigation. ( Full Answer )

There are two ways in which the police start prosecutions in court: either by charge or by summons. In either case, the person involved is required by law to attend court at a time and place given to them. Generally, the police charge people in a police station either after they have been arrested …or later when they have answered bail. This tends to happen in more serious cases. If someone has not been arrested then the police might issue a summons. This tends to happen in less serious cases. When the police issue a summons they tell the person that they will be reported. This can happen anywhere including in a person's home. A file is then sent to the court who, if they agree that there could be a case to answer, will write with an instruction to attend court. Sometimes the police summons people even though they have been previously arrested. This is legal although it does mean that the case often takes longer to reach court. For this reason it is used in less serious cases. ( Full Answer )

There is no time limit upon reporting a crime in the UK. But for some crimes, there is a time limit on whether that crime can be prosecuted in court. In the UK most crimes can be prosecuted regardless of the length of time that has elapsed since the were committed. This includes, for example, serio…us violence, robbery, burglary, theft, sexual offences, murder and many other offences. However, some minor crimes cannot be prosecuted after six months. This includes, for example, violence that does not cause an injury, driving offences, among others. If the crime is racially motivated then the six month limit may be extended to twelve months. Even though most crimes can be prosecuted 'forever', it is up to each individual police force to decide whether or not to pursue an investigation if considerable time has elapsed. The force might take into account the seriousness of the offence, the motive for the delay in reporting, and whether, given the elapse of time, a successful outcome is likely. Even if the police do investigate, a court might still say that the prosecution is an abuse of process if it could have been brought at an earlier time ... for example, when memories were fresher and more accurate. Nevertheless, in very serious cases such as rape and murder, there have been successful prosecutions in the UK in recent years - often due to new evidence being made available by forensic science technology such as DNA.

robbery is the most common crime in the UK and anywhere else in the world.
Because in a "victimless" crime there isn't one particular victim, everyone in the community is a victim in some small part, or the victim is unknown. Example: A man sees a hooker working a street corner and offers to pay this adult woman for sex. That's prostitution. There is no victim. Both peop…le are willing participants. Or you could say that the "victim" is all the people in soceity who have good morals and who are offended that this sort of thing goes on. Another example: Let's say the law says you cannot possess a gun with an altered or defaced (scrached-off) serial number. You are found with such a gun in your vehicle, and you are arrested. Who is the victim? The gun you have is almost certainly stolen, but we will probably never know who the victim of the theft was. So we call this a "public order crime" because it's closely related to criminal activity. Another View: the firearm violation referred to above is NOT a valid example of a "public order' offense. Probably the two most cited examples of 'public order' offenses are 'Disorderly Conduct" and Public Drunkenness.' Again, there isn't any one specific victim but society as a whole is cheapened and devalued by such public displays. Hence, they are crimes against the "public order." ( Full Answer )
Yes it is a crime to open other people's mail in the UK, this in interception of communications which is a criminal offence under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. This also applies to emails, phone calls and text messages. However, the crime is only committed if the mail is in the c…ourse of transmission. Which basically means that if it has already arrived at your address then it is not interception if someone else just opens it. If the person steals the contents or uses them to commit a fraud (for example) then they may commit other offences. Some government agencies (such as the police) have the power to open mail even if it is in transmission, but only when authorised by a warrant signed by the Home Secretary who will want to know the reason why. Customs Officers do not have to have permission, but can only open items entering or exiting the UK. Sometimes the Post Office will open mail if it has been incorrectly addressed in order to work out where to deliver it or to return it. This is lawful because it is part of the agreement in posting a letter. ( Full Answer )
