Were you drunk on 6th Street and trying to start a fight? Or were you sober and protesting against illegal police actions? A disorderly conduct charge doesn’t show the difference.
The problem with criminal records is that they don’t tell the full story. When you are charged with disorderly conduct, most people will assume that it involved alcohol or a fight. If you are convicted, you will spend the rest of your life having to explain why you were arrested. Many times there is a very good explanation, but it takes a few minutes to get through the story. So employers and girlfriends and landlords are skeptical.
If there is a good defense to the arrest, you should present it now instead of at every job interview for the next 10 years. We can help.
