Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client charged with disorderly conduct, a petty disorderly persons offense in New Jersey under N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2A. This is the lowest level criminal offense we have in New Jersey which can result in a maximum $500 fine, up to 30 days in the county jail, and a permanent criminal charge on your record if convicted. This conviction can be expunged after five (5) years depending on what other issues may appear on your criminal history.
The client was out with some friends in downtown Morristown at the Iron Bar. He is a young professional with no prior criminal history. Unfortunately, he had too much to drink that evening and was involved in a minor altercation at the establishment. The bouncers called the police and he was arrested and charged with this disorderly conduct offense. Based on his lack of criminal history, his employment, licensing, etc. Mr. Tormey was able to negotiate a plea agreement with the Morristown Municipal Prosecutor that resulted in a fine and no criminal record. The client plead guilty to a local ordinance violation for noise/disturbing the peace which allowed him to avoid jail time, probation, and preserve his clean record. This violation is a violation of local law and is on the level of a littering ticket or leaving your garbage at the curb on the wrong day. The client will be able to expunge the arrest record in 2 years as well.
