You also may be asking yourself, “What does disorderly even mean?”
Before we get to the answer to that question, let’s talk a little about why you should take this charge seriously.
The Problem With a Disorderly Conduct Conviction
Even though Disorderly Conduct is considered to be a misdemeanor, it comes with some not so pleasant repercussions.
One of the most unpleasant consequences that occurs after a disorderly conduct conviction is that they will show up on a background check and can affect your employment. We are talking about your current job AND future jobs!
Having this type of charge on your record could scare employers off by making you look like a troublemaker even if it isn’t true.

Why Having a Lawyer Will Help
The definition of Disorderly Conduct is so broad and much is left up to interpretation. It can be very easy to get slapped with these charges when you never intended to be disorderly!
While the fine is on the lower end and so is the jail time, ANY amount of money or jail time is too much when you have bills to pay and a job to go to. These charges come with the bad rap of being a troublemaker. Don’t let yourself be branded a troublemaker for the rest of your life just because of some “disorderly” behavior that you never intended to be illegal!
