“If you’ve been charged with disorderly conduct in New Jersey, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you beat your charges and avoid jail time.”
Travis J. Tormey recently represented a client who was charged with several offenses arising out of an incident at a Jets game at MetLife Stadium. The client was a fan who went onto the field after the game and took one of the towels out of the bin without permission. Our client had no prior record and, in fact, had a field pass to go onto the field after the game. However, she was so excited that she “jumped the gun” and went onto the field early and without proper permission.
She was charged with disorderly conduct, defiant trespassing, and a local ordinance violation for creating a disturbance at the stadium. Mr. Tormey was able to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutor which allowed both criminal charges (known as disorderly persons offenses) to be dropped. The client pleaded guilty to the local ordinance violation and received a small fine. She will have no criminal record from this unfortunate incident. This was a great result for the client and for the law firm.
