Defending Against Disorderly Conduct Charges
Actions that can be charged as disorderly conduct are diverse in nature; regardless, they are all generally considered to be disruptive and dangerous. For instance, disorderly conduct charges may be filed against any person suspected of anything as serious as rioting or as simple as pointing a laser pointer under the wrong circumstances. With so many acts falling under the broader umbrella of disorderly conduct, it is sometimes utilized by police officers as a generalized charge for any offenses they believe to be inappropriate or disruptive.
Potential Penalties of a Disorderly Conduct Conviction
Though the particular offense that you may have been charged with may not seem very serious in and of itself, a disorderly conduct conviction will likely have a direct impact upon your life. In the short term, you may possible face the following consequences of a conviction:
- Substantial fines
- Community service
- Jail time
However, in the long term, the consequences of these charges may severely impair your ability to secure certain forms of employment, enter into a lease agreement, or even apply for certain loans.
