Defending against Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly Conduct can be charged as a misdemeanor crime but also as a forfeiture citation. Disorderly conduct is not something that should be taken lightly. It may not be a big deal to someone who already has a criminal record, or someone who does not care about a criminal conviction. However, a criminal conviction of any sorts can and will have an impact on your life. Often there are unforeseen consequences to a disorderly conduct conviction in Wisconsin.

What is considered Disorderly Conduct in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin Statute § 947.01 defines disorderly conduct as engaging in violent, abusive, indecent, profane, boisterous, unreasonably loud or otherwise disorderly conduct under circumstances in which the conduct tends to cause or provoke a disturbance in a public or private place. “Tend to cause or provoke a disturbance” depends on the circumstances. It depends on the circumstances as they existed at the time and the nature of the conduct.  If the conduct is private or personal in nature there has to be a real possibility that the disturbance will spill over and cause a threat or disturbance to the surrounding community. However conduct that only tends to cause a personal annoyance is not punishable under the statute. If convicted, you would be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor.

Disorderly Conduct use of a Dangerous Weapon

Penalties increase with use of a dangerous weapon. The maximum jail time increases six months to a total of nine months in jail. A “dangerous weapon” has a specific meaning in this situation. Just having a gun will not subject you to these penalties. There is some protection for individuals who carry a firearm. A person may not be charged just because they are carrying a firearm. There must be other facts and circumstances that would indicate a criminal or malicious intent.
