Are you currently needing the help of an experienced defense attorney in the St. Cloud area to assist with a disorderly conduct charge? The expert defense attorneys at Heller & Thyen, P.A. can help.
A disorderly conduct charge is very broad and can be applied to a large number of situations. Basically, it is charged when an individual does some form of behavior with reason to know that it: (1) involves brawling or fighting with another; (2) disturbs or interrupts a lawful assembly or meeting; or (3) involves behavior of various types that reasonably tends to cause anger, alarm or resentment to others.
This charge is often used by police and prosecutors to go along with other charges. It requires showing that the person knew, or had reason to know, that their behavior fits into one of the three above definitions.
Disorderly Conduct is most often a Misdemeanor offense, meaning it is punishable by jail up to 90 days, a $1000.00 fine or both. However, if the act is done by a caregiver to a person who is deemed to be “vulnerable” under Minnesota statute, it can be charged as a Gross Misdemeanor punishable by jail up to one year, a $3000.00 fine, or both.
If you are behind on your mortgage payment or car loan, a Chapter 7 will not bring you current. However, there may be other options available to you., like Chapter 13.
It is also important to keep in mind that a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may not protect all of your assets. If you own multiple homes with a lot of equity in them or other valuable assets such as boats or vehicles without loans against them, the bankruptcy trustee will either sell the item and use the proceeds to pay some of your creditors, or negotiate with you to receive the cash equivalent of the asset. We can help you negotiate with the trustee if this situation arises.
If you find yourself in this type of situation, where you have unprotected assets that you want to keep, it may be better to do some pre-bankruptcy planning or look into a Chapter 13 payment plan.
