What Is Disorderly Conduct?
The penal law of Connecticut describes disorderly conduct as:

- fighting or other violent or disruptive behavior
- making noise or otherwise disturbing the public
- obstructing traffic
- refusing to disperse
- trespassing and viewing another person in their home
Penalties for Disorderly Conduct in Connecticut
Under Connecticut criminal laws, Disorderly Conduct is a Class C Misdemeanor, which carries a maximum penalty of up to 3 months in jail, and a $500 fine.
If you have been arrested for the first time in Connecticut for disorderly conduct or domestic violent, you can almost bet that the morning following you will be handed a restraining order or an order of protection. That is a very typical result of these kinds of arrests.
Criminal Court Process
During court, there will be arguments that are heard in regards to the event. There will also be reports about the safety of the situation. Your Connecticut disorderly conduct lawyer will make a case for you to show reasons why you should not have an order of protection or restraining order issued against you.
If you have given all arguments and all the allegations have been heard and such, then the judge might decide that very day that you will have an immediately effective restraining order.
