Columbia County Disorderly Conduct Attorney

In Pennsylvania, disorderly conduct is usually charged as a summary offense, which is not as serious as a misdemeanor. However, it can still be embarrassing to have on your record. For this reason, you should never plead guilty without legal advice.

As a defense attorney with nearly 25 years of experience handling both criminal offenses and summary citations in the Columbia County area, I will take great care to help you to obtain the most favorable outcome possible in your case. My law office is conveniently located on Main Street in downtown Bloomsburg, one block from the Columbia County courthouse and within walking distance of Bloomsburg University.

Keeping Your Record As Clear As Possible

A number of offenses may be charged as disorderly conduct in Pennsylvania. Examples include:

  • Public drunkenness
  • Underage drinking offenses
  • Abusive or threatening behavior in public
  • Using loud or obscene language in public

Disorderly conduct may also be a lesser included offense included with a more serious charge such as theft or destruction of property.

If you or a loved one has been charged with disorderly conduct, you are probably embarrassed and just want the charges to go away. However, if the charge is not resolved in a favorable manner, the embarrassment can last for a lifetime. Anyone with a computer or smartphone will be able to read about your arrest record.
