Connecticut Disorderly Conduct Laws & Penalties
Disorderly conduct laws and penalties in Connecticut are covered under the Connecticut General Statutes, specifically Title 53a, Section 182. Disorderly conduct is a broad term that encompasses a range of disruptive behaviors that disturb the public peace and order. It can include actions such as fighting, engaging in violent or tumultuous behavior, using offensive language, or creating a hazardous or physically threatening situation.
Under Connecticut law, disorderly conduct is considered a misdemeanor offense. The penalties for disorderly conduct can vary depending on the circumstances and the severity of the offense.
Disorderly conduct is generally classified as a class C misdemeanor. If convicted, the maximum penalties for a class C misdemeanor in Connecticut can include a fine of up to $500, imprisonment for up to three months, or both.
However, if disorderly conduct involves the use of a dangerous instrument, a person could face a charge of aggravated disorderly conduct.
