Disorderly Conduct and Disorderly Persons Offenses in Palisades Interstate Park
One of the most frequent questions that our attorneys are asked is: if I am charged with disorderly conduct, what does that mean and what court should I expect to be in? Disorderly Conduct, N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2, often occurs when one acts inappropriately in public. Many times this happens when one swears or engages in violent behavior. For example, let’s say you are at your favorite bar in town and all of the sudden someone sitting at the bar had one too many to drink and starts to cursing at the bartender when prohibited from another round of beverages. If that person physically injures or places other in danger than he or she may be facing more than just disorderly conduct charges. However, if one just creates a disturbance by swearing or threatening those around that individual then he or she could be charged with disorderly conduct. If just charged with disorderly conduct then you most likely will be in the Palisades Interstate Park Municipal Court when handling your case. However, keep in mind if you are charged with disorderly conduct in conjunction with other criminal offenses, then your case may end up in the Bergen County Superior Court depending on the number of charges you have and the degree.
Specifically, disorderly persons offenses and petty disorderly persons offenses are the criminal charges that Municipal Courts handle is New Jersey. Felony charges are subject to indictment, meaning a grand jury has to be presented with the information and decide to issue a true bill before a case can be litigated at trial. Indictable offenses include first, second, third, and fourth degree crimes and all of these are handled at the Superior Court level. They each have prison time attached if convicted, with first degree carrying the longest sentencing and fourth degree carrying the shortest of the indictable crimes.
