One possible way to fight a disorderly conduct charge in New Jersey is through a plea negotiation with the prosecutor. A disorderly conduct charge in NJ is a petty disorderly persons offense which results in a permanent criminal charge on your record if convicted along with a $500 fine, up to 30 days in county jail, and possible probation. If you have no prior record, the prosecutor may consider downgrading (amending) this criminal charge to a local ordinance (borough ordinance) violation which results in a fine and no criminal record. This is similar to a littering ticket or a noise complaint for having a party at your home. This is a great result in a case where you are facing a permanent record and significant punishment.
