Disorderly Conduct Charges: Jefferson/Dodge County

Disorderly conduct is a crime that involves many gray areas. As a Class B misdemeanor, it can lead to jail time and significant fines. And like other criminal offenses, a conviction can impair your opportunities down the road.

But what, exactly, is disorderly conduct? Other states use terminology such as "breach of peace" or "public disturbance." Wisconsin law defines the offense in terms of conduct that disturbs others because it is:

  • Abusive
  • Unreasonably loud
  • Boisterous
  • Indecent
  • Profane

Simply listing out these terms is one thing; it is far more difficult to apply them to a concrete situation. Getting arrested for disorderly conduct can raise numerous questions. That's where we come in.
