Virginia Disorderly Conduct Laws

Virginia Disorderly Conduct Laws

When a person is doing something that the police consider a nuisance in Virginia, they usually charge the person with disorderly conduct. What many people do not realize is that simply being a nuisance does violate the law of disorderly conduct as written in Virginia. Therefore, people who are charged with disorderly conduct plead guilty without getting the assistance of a criminal defense attorney. Unfortunately, this results in the person being convicted of a crime that carries the possibility of jail time and a fine. Even if the person convicted of disorderly conduct does not receive jail, they will certainly receive a permanent mark on their criminal record. Do not let this happen to you.
