  • Disorderly Conduct

    Is disorderly conduct always considered a Misdemeanor Crime?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question and/or a waste of your time! Thanks.

    Disorderly Conduct.

    Short answer: Yes. I don't know of any jurisdictions where Disorderly Conduct is a felony.

        Just wondering if it can ever be anything less than a misdemeanor? Can it ever be just a forefiture? Thanks again.

          Disorderly Conduct

          Forfeiture is a new one on me. Crimes are generally catagorized as

          1) Felonies
          2) Misdemeanors
          3),Violations.

          There is a more extensive discussion of classification of crimes on another thread.

            No, but damn well should be sometimes.

            I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

              In Illinois if you file a false police report you will be charged with disorderly conduct but the statute under paragraph 4 makes it a felony. So yes here there is a such thing as felony disorderly conduct.

                D.C. section 5503 in the PA crimes code is a summary unless the person continues to be disorderly after sufficient warning then it goes to an M-3...

                  In Wisconsin, disorderly conduct is primarily a misdemeanor offense. A local government can adopt a forfeiture ordinance in compliance with the state statute. So, do answer your question, if the state is prosecuting it is always a crime. If the local jurisdiction is prosecuting it can be either a crime or a forfeiture.

                    In Wisconsin, forfeitures are violations. They are punishable by a fine only. Its just a matter of legal semantics.

                      DOC in many places is a catch all violation. Run your mouth in certain jurisdictions & you will find yourself being charged with it & having reservations at the county jail. It is a minor crime but never the less arrestable.

                        In our county you write DC as a ordinance or a misdemeanor state charge. Officer discretion and situation permitting. Our DA usually takes simple battery and other minor crimes for first time offenders and reduces them to DC tickets. Mostly because he's overwhelmed.
                        Discretion is the better part of valor.

                        I'd rather be known as a really good witness, than as a really dead hero.

                        Its always something. You never know what, but there is always more to the story.

                          In Wisc. it is always misdemeanor, most municipalites/counties in state also have ordinance violations for D.C. In the City of Milwaukee , it is officers discretion whether to issue ticket or state charges. It depends of severity of incident and suspects criminal history. In most cases the tcket is issued and it is just a forfieture $175.00 ,unless they dont pay for it then it can turn into a commitment for 3 days in jail. Hope this answers your ? GODD LUCK ,hope too see you on the streets soon....
