A person charged with disorderly conduct needs an attorney who will challenge this arrest.
Keep in mind, being charged with a crime does not mean you are guilty. The State still has to prove its case, and the circumstances surrounding your arrest can impact the outcome of your case. Success in these cases relies upon experienced representation and a proper defense.
A person could face fines or jail time if the State does not drop the case. If this is your first criminal offense, you could end up with a criminal record. A criminal conviction can affect future employment or educational opportunities.
A person charged with Disorderly Conduct needs to:
- Avoid a criminal record at all costs, which will follow you around for the rest of your life.
- Keep your job or maintain opportunities for future employment.
- Maintain your current scholarship or eligibility to obtain future opportunities.
