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.

Disorderly persons crimes include:
- Simple assault
- Resisting arrest
- Possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Property theft of less than $200 value
- Bad checks
- Disorderly conduct
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.
