As a former Municipal Court Judge presiding in Union Township, NJ from 1999-2005, I’ve seen my fair share of what these charges can lead to if not defended aggressively, which is something I now do as a criminal defense attorney for all my clients.
Disorderly person’s offenses cover numerous unlawful acts that include but certainly are not limited to:
The police can use a disorderly person’s charge for a variety of behaviors. While it might not rise to the level of a serious offense, nevertheless it is disruptive to the public at hand. When incidents escalate into pushing and shoving among persons, assault charges are usually bundled in.
In most cases these are misdemeanors punishable by fines, but a disorderly person’s offense does carry the possibility of six months in the County Jail. If you are dealing with misdemeanor assault, for example, and the injuries area substantial, a Municipal Court Judge may seriously consider a jail term.
