The Police Will Sometimes Arrest Someone for Disorderly When They are Not Being DisorderlyContact Schmierlaw for Help to Protect Your Rights and Freedom
Michigan and most local ordinances have disorderly conduct laws making certain conduct a crime, such as being drunk in public and creating a disturbance or making too much noise. Often times the statutes are used as a "catch-all" offense to deter what officials have decided is obnoxious or unruly. Police will often use a disorderly conduct charge to keep the peace when a person is behaving badly but presents no serious danger.
Whether you've been accused of disturbing the peace, being drunk in public, or any other behaviors that constitute disorderly conduct, it's important to know the consequences of a plea bargain or criminal conviction. Although these cases rarely rise to the level of felonious conduct, you should understand how being convicted of even a minor misdemeanor can impact you. And while a disorderly conduct or disorderly person charge may seem like no big deal, conviction could affect your gun rights as well.
An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney may be able to advise you on the best way to proceed if you have been charged with Disorderly Person or Disorderly Conduct. Although both charges appear similar, they have different collateral damages and even affect your right to possess a firearm or obtain a CPL or concealed pistol license.
Sometimes the police or Prosecutor may try to be nice guys and write you up for "disorderly conduct" or "disorderly person" just as a way of mildly punishing you for something you did when you were drunk or just acting you were. The Prosecutor is trying to give you a good deal, but unwittingly could be affecting your gun rights without without either of you knowing it until it is too late.
