Disorderly conduct is a Class C misdemeanor
crime. If you were to be convicted, the MAXIMUM penalty is UP TO a $500 fine and/or UP TO 30 days in jail. Below is a link to a site that explains the disorderly conduct statute in detail.
Reckless driving is also a misdemeanor offense.If you were convicted, you will have a criminal record
, your license could be suspended, there would be fines/costs and even possible jail time. Below is an article that explains the charge in more detail. http://www.trafficviolationlawfirms.com/resources/traffic-tickets/moving-violations/kansas-reckless-driving-laws
Because of the possible short and long term penalties involved with a conviction for either or both of the offenses, you should contact an attorney ASAP. Below is a link to the Kansas Bar Association Attorney Referral Service. Sometimes, an initial consultation is free or at a minimal charge. You can discuss the facts of your case, evaluate your options and decide how to proceed. An attorney may be able to advocate with the prosecutor to have the charges dismissed or reduced. It may even be possible to try to keep your criminal record clean.http://www.ksbar.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=8
It will be WELL WORTH your time to speak to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, and you meet the financial requirements, you can ask the judge to appoint you a public defender to assist you. So, even if you can't afford an attorney, you will already know (from your consultation) what an attorney can do for you and what your defenses to the charges may be. That way, if you are appointed a public defender, you will already know what to expect.
