Disorderly Conduct Can Be a Serious Charge

Chicago residents may think that disorderly conduct is not that serious a criminal charge, but depending on the circumstances, it can have incredibly serious penalties. If you are facing such a charge, you need strong, aggressive help from a criminal defense attorney who will work to uphold your rights and keep consequences to a minimum. Because a disorderly conduct charge can often be added on to other charges, having a knowledgeable attorney is essential to sorting through all of the legal complexities and making sure that you understand the gravity of the offenses with which you have been charged.

 

For example, popular rapper Jim Jones was recently arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, but also faces charges of hindering police, as well as charges from previous warrants. The incident apparently began when officers were attempting to tow Jones’s vehicle. Though he was initially cooperative and willing to pay the ticket and fine, Jones allegedly became upset and belligerent when the law enforcement authorities began asking him about outstanding tickets and warrants. Now, in addition to those charges, he has the disorderly conduct charge with which to contend.

 

Depending upon the circumstances, if Chicago police charge you with disorderly conduct, you could face a fine of up to $10,000 plus hours of community service. When you need a Chicago disorderly conduct attorney to defend you, Andrew M. Weisberg is a former felony prosecutor who has extensive experience defending clients in similar situations.
