Disorderly conduct is often charged in domestic violence situations.  If police are called to a domestic violence situation and find that no one has been hurt, they may refer this as disorderly conduct. Since the disorderly conduct occurred in a domestic violence situation does not mean they can apply a 'domestic violence modifier'.

Perhaps one of the easiest charges for a district attorney to prove, a disorderly conduct charge may seem to simply entail a brief arrest or fine. In reality, a conviction can result in a sentence that includes significant jail time and probation. If the people involved in the incident that resulted in an arrest for disorderly conduct had a domestic relationship, a conviction will mean additional penalties.

The crime of disorderly conduct is committed by one who:

  1. in a public or private place, engages in conduct that is “violent, abusive, indecent, or otherwise disorderly,”
  2. under circumstances that “tend to cause or provoke a disturbance.”

Wisconsin penalties for Disorderly Conduct:

  1. Disorderly conduct is a Class B misdemeanor offense. The penalties for a Class B misdemeanor can include a fine of up to $1,000, jail time for up to 90 days, or both.
  2. If the conviction is for a second or subsequent disorderly conduct offense, jail times can be increased for up to 2 years.
