Englewood Disorderly Persons Defense Lawyer

Preventing a Minor Crime from Ruining Your Life

Disorderly persons offenses are the most commonly given charges for minor, non-motor vehicle crimes and are usually handled in municipal court in New Jersey. Disorderly persons charges carry a maximum penalty of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines. While these charges may not seem like they mean much, they will appear on your record. This will affect your ability to get a job, as you are required to inform a potential employer of any arrests, as well as your ability to apply for school.

You need a skilled lawyer to protect your rights and keep you out of jail. Call Alan M. Liebowitz, Esq., at (201) 340-9338 for results-driven criminal defense.

Disorderly persons crimes include:

  • Simple assault
  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Harassment
  • Property theft of less than $200 value
  • Shoplifting
  • Bad checks
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Lewdness
  • Obstruction

These low-level offenses require the help of an experienced attorney to prevent your record from being tarnished. Once you are convicted of a disorderly persons offense, you are not even eligible to have your record expunged for five years. Far better to make sure the conviction never holds.
