The Consequences Of Disorderly Persons Offenses

If you have been arrested for a disorderly persons offense, do not take the charge lightly. Disorderly persons offenses can be punished by up to six months in jail, fines of $1,000, restitution, community service, driver's license suspension and probation.

Serious, long-term consequences above and beyond the court-ordered sentence include:

  • Immigration issues.
  • State workers, doctors, nurses, attorneys, pharmacists or stockbrokers may lose their positions.
  • If you are later convicted of a more serious crime, the sentence may be more severe if there is a disorderly persons conviction on your record.
