Misdemeanor and Disorderly Conduct
Your Advocate in Misdemeanor and Disorderly Conduct Cases
A Misdemeanor/Disorderly Person charge is one that, in general, carries a maximum jail sentence of less than one (1) year. Additionally, a Misdemeanor/Disorderly Person conviction can also result in fines and penalties, as well as the risk of losing professional licenses and difficultly obtaining employment in the future.
Misdemeanor/Disorderly Persons offenses are less serious in nature than Felonies (Indictable Charges) and include such offenses as Simple assault, possession of marijuana under fifty (50) grams, petty theft (e.g., shoplifting) and disorderly conduct or behavior.
Although a criminal defense attorney cannot guarantee the particular outcome of your Misdemeanor/Disorderly Person case, there are a number of factors that we can assist in identifying and bringing to the Court’s attention. For instance, if this is your first contact with the Criminal Judgment System or it has been a number of years since your last offense, you could gain favor with the judge. Also, in cases involving drugs or alcohol, successful completion of an education course or treatment program could result in a dismissal of your arrest would then allow for an expungement of your criminal history.
