Sometimes the charge can be levied as part of a larger indictment, such as if a fight breaks out, and in other cases there may even be First Amendment issues that the court must consider in addressing whether your conduct can be considered a violation.
Conviction on a disorderly persons offense can include jail time of up to six months, so it’s important that you face your charges with an experienced attorney at your side.
