Being charged with disorderly conduct may not seem like a big deal, but it is. A criminal charge of disorderly conduct can arise out of a number of situations, including a fight, an argument, loud or offensive language, or failure to comply with the direction of law enforcement. If you have been charged with disorderly conduct, it is imperative that you immediately hire a New Jersey simple assault lawyer to help you avoid the punishment associated with this crime.
Penalties for Disorderly Conduct
Although a criminal charge of disorderly conduct does not accompany what may seem like serious penalties, especially when compared to other serious crimes such as murder, these penalties will still have a big impact on all aspects of your life.
If you are convicted of disorderly conduct, you may face a fine of $500 and up to 30 days in jail. If a motor vehicle was used while committing the disorderly conduct, the court may also suspend your driving privileges for up two years.
These potential punishments and penalties should not be taken lightly. You need to immediately hire a New Jersey simple assault lawyer who can aggressively protect your legal rights.
