Disorderly Conduct Attorney in Dover, New Jersey

You may be surprised to learn that disorderly conduct is technically a criminal offense in New Jersey. This charge is considered a petty disorderly persons offense, which is similar to a low-level misdemeanor in other states. The potential penalties for a disorderly conduct offense include up to 30 days in the Morris County Jail and a fine of up to $500. You may also be sentenced to perform community service or subject to a period of probation. A conviction for disorderly conduct will also result in a criminal record that may prevent you from passing the stage in which potential employers run a criminal background check. Fortunately, you don’t need to simply accept a disorderly conduct charge and plead guilty.
