Disorderly Conduct Lawyer Parsippany

Lawmakers attempt to provide law enforcement officers with the ability to maintain public safety in New Jersey by enacting statutes such as N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2. This law enables police officers to arrest and charge people who threaten the safety of others, disrupt order, or engage in offensive behavior. Disorderly conduct charges are extraordinarily common because of the breadth of the language contained in the law. Since it can apply to so many situations, individuals are charged with disorderly conduct in Parsippany and throughout Morris County on a regular basis. It is not surprising then that the experienced attorneys at The Tormey Law Firm routinely appear in Parsippany-Troy Hills Municipal Court defending clients accused of disorderly conduct. If you are facing these serious charges, enlisting the right lawyer can mean the difference between a criminal conviction and keeping your criminal record clean. It can also prevent the jail time and significant fines associated with disorderly conduct violations in NJ. Our attorneys, led by award-winning criminal defense lawyer Travis J. Tormey, are dedicated to mitigating the consequences you’re facing in Parsippany. To discuss your case and learn about the ways we can work toward a dismissal or downgrading your charges to a municipal ordinance instead of a criminal offense, contact us at (908) 336-5008.

Charged with Disorderly Conduct in Parsippany

A large proportion of charges for disorderly conduct occur in settings where alcohol is present. You may have heard the term “drunk and disorderly,” which is commonly associated with violations of section 2C:33-2 of the New Jersey Statutes. This law was written to encompass a wide range of actions, including anything that can be construed as improper behavior or offensive language. Consider all of the things that one could argue are offensive or improper and you begin to see why disorderly conduct is so prevalent in Parsippany and New Jersey as a whole.

Some of the ways disorderly conduct can occur include: fighting, threatening, being violent, behaving in a tumultuous way, cursing or using coarse language, or doing anything that serves no purpose and creates a hazard while other people are present. Notably, disorderly conduct must occur in a public place to be considered valid under 2C:33-2. Some of the common locations for disorderly conduct charges include stadiums, event venues, schools, restaurants, bars, commercial retail outfits, amusement parks, train stations, and even roads.

Penalties for Disorderly Conduct in Parsippany-Troy Hills

If you are issued a summons for disorderly conduct in Parsippany, you will be required to appear in Parsippany Municipal Court to answer for the charge. Since disorderly conduct is classified as a petty disorderly persons offense, it carries up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. Notably, it is technically the lowest-level criminal offense in New Jersey, which means a conviction will leave you with a criminal record and will appear on a background check. One of the ways our attorneys often resolve these cases is to secure a downgrading of disorderly conduct to a municipal ordinance violation, which allows our clients to avoid a criminal record altogether and simply pay a fine.
