Olathe Disorderly Conduct Lawyer

Arrested for disorderly conduct?

If you or a loved one has been arrested for disorderly conduct, you may have found the experience pretty upsetting. You may also think of this as "not very serious, it's only a misdemeanor". It is true that if convicted, a person wouldn't be sentenced to long years in prison, but don't make the mistake of thinking it isn't serious. It is a crime. It will appear on your criminal record. The prosecutor and the judge will take this matter quite seriously. As an experienced Olathe criminal defense lawyer, I have helped numerous clients in Johnson County to stay clear of having a criminal record. It is important to take action in your own defense.
