CHARGED WITH PUBLIC URINATION OR DEFECATION IN PITTSBURGH?

Residents of the Southside have become increasingly frustrated by the influx of alcohol related nuisances. As a result, City of Pittsburgh Police Officers are cracking down on public urination violations by charging violators with public ordinance offenses. 

PUBLIC URINATION DEFINITION AND PENALTIES

Pittsburgh's Public Urination Ordinance is found at Section 601.16 of the City's Code of Ordinances. A person commits a violation if he or she urinates or defecates in, on or about a public place, private property where the public is admitted by easement or license, or a private place without the owner's consent. 

If convicted, you are facing a $500 fine plus court costs, for a total of roughly $600-$650. The worst consequence of a public urination conviction is the fact that this offense is searchable on the Pennsylvania Unified Judicial System Portal, where it can be discovered by employers, educational institutions, and other interested parties.
