Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem. I am not fully aware of what prior steps you have taken.


The charge of disorderly conduct is one of the most general types of misdemeanor charges and can actually include any type of action that results in some type of disturbance. Being charged with a disorderly persons offense can include yelling, rioting, loud noise issues, fighting or attempting to provoke a fight or even being intoxicated and disruptive. Typically disorderly conduct is a type of catch-all offense, however it can be very serious.
Disorderly Conduct charges can take in a very large range of possible fines not to exceed $500, requirements for counseling or anger management or even, in severe cases, jail time not to exceed 30 days. More than one offense or a criminal record can significantly impact the sentencing for disorder conduct charges.

When determining the sentence to be imposed with a charge of disorderly conduct the judge has considerable discretion about the charges. Many disorderly conduct charges are dismissed or dropped before the case even gets to the judge, or a suspended sentence is ordered. If the judge does find the defendant guilty often the first offense results in fines, court ordered counseling or even community service hours.
