Disorderly Persons Offenses
NJ Disorderly Persons Offenses
Disorderly Persons Offenses carry a maximum six (6) months in a county jail, up to a $1,000 fine, along with the possibility of community service, probation, and a permanent criminal record. Under New Jersey law, if the penalties for the offense involve six (6) months or less of jail time, the offense is not considered a crime. However, these offenses are still classified under the “2C” criminal code under New Jersey law, and a Disorderly Persons conviction will still result in a permanent criminal record.
