Disorderly Conduct/Assault and Battery

Disorderly Conduct/Assault and Battery

Disorderly conduct is an extremely common charge typically indicating nothing more than that a police officer found your behavior irritating or unhelpful. Such an arbitrary charge can often be successfully overturned, at the very least mitigating the consequences for you and your record and possibly keeping the charge from going to court. Declining to defend yourself with the help of attorney could cause a potentially minor charge to become a serious threat to your record, finances, rights, and/or liberty. With the help of an attorney, many disorderly conduct charges on their own will not necessarily have a serious impact on the rest of your life.

On the other hand, a charge of disorderly conduct often also follows a more serious charge, such as assault and battery. Assault and battery charges can come in many variations with a large impact on potential sentencing, with possible jail time of 2 1/2 years for simple assault and battery charges to as much as 20 years for a more serious charge such as assault and battery with the intent to kill. Besides the many different types of assault and battery charges one may be confronted with, the original charge already serves as a very broad characterization: causing bodily harm or the threat thereof, or, of course, the alleged victim's perception of bodily harm or such a threat. Unintentional physical contact or confrontations between equally culpable parties can often result in assault charges, among other misunderstandings or false accusations. Attorney Rifman will be able to inform you on the nature of the charges you face, the potential consequences, and ideally will have them reduced or dropped.
