Criminal Defense
Disorderly Conduct charges can effect future empolyment. The Law Offices of Harter & Schottland located in Northern Illinois can help.


Under Illinois law, Disorderly Conduct is generally an act that alarms or disturbs a member of the public and provokes a breach of the peace . Other more specific elements to Disorderly Conduct include false reports to public safety agencies, as well as interfering with lawful business or public service and safety agents. While a Disorderly Conduct misdemeanor in Illinois is a lesser crime than a felony, no criminal charge should be taken lightly. Disorderly Conduct misdemeanor convictions on your record can also affect your employment and other aspects of your life. If you already have a misdemeanor conviction on your record, the sentence for a subsequent offense will likely be more severe. That is why it is always wise to consult with a criminal defense attorney regarding any Disorderly Conduct misdemeanor charges in Illinois.
