Disorderly Conduct Offense Charges Certified Criminal Trial Attorney
The offense of disorderly conduct is a catch all offense for many types of improper behavior. Individuals who fight, threaten, or engage in violence, or create a hazardous or physically dangerous condition by an act which serves no legitimate purpose may be charged with disorderly conduct.
Disorderly Conduct and the Law
In New Jersey, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct (improper behavior) if with purpose to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof he/she engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or tumultuous behavior or creates a hazardous or physically dangerous condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose. A person may also be guilty of disorderly conduct (offensive language) if, in a public place, and with purpose to offend the sensibilities of a hearer or in reckless disregard of the probability of so doing, he/she addresses unreasonably loud and offensively coarse or abusive language. Disorderly conduct is a petty disorderly offense which carries a maximum fines of $500, possible probation, and up to 30 days in the county jail.
