Disorderly Conduct in Maryland

Let Our Baltimore Criminal Defense Lawyers Protect Your Rights & Future

From being too loud and rowdy at a Baltimore Ravens or Orioles game to refusing to obey an order from law enforcement, there are various ways a person can be charged with disorderly conduct in Maryland. Unfortunately, this type of crime can result in expensive fines, jail time, and even a permanent criminal record that can affect your personal life and professional reputation.

If you have been arrested for disorderly conduct, our Baltimore disorderly conduct attorneys at Scheuerman Law, LLC can help you clear your name or help you avoid serious penalties. We can review the evidence involved in your case and look for any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case to help you obtain a case dismissal or a lighter sentence.

Maryland Disorderly Conduct Laws

According to state law, the following types of behaviors constitute disorderly conduct:

  • Intentionally disturbing the peace
  • Making unreasonably loud noises in a public place to disturb the peace
  • Knowingly failing to follow a reasonable order from a police officer
  • Willfully obstruct a person’s free passage into a public place
  • Entering a property to disturb the peace or make unreasonably loud noises

A “public place” is considered any location besides a house or commercial building, such as shops, restaurants, bars, parks, schools, sidewalks, and other venues available to the public. Unless a person’s conduct disturbs others, they cannot be charged with disturbing the peace.

A conviction for disorderly conduct is punishable by a maximum 60-day jail term and/or a fine of up to $500. Public intoxication can result in a jail sentence of up to 90 days and/or a fine no more than $100. Interfering with a sporting event can carry a jail term of up to three months and/or a fine not exceeding $250.

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”

  • Effective, Precise and Thorough!!

    “Mr. Scheuerman was an effective lawyer who gave great legal advise and consultation with great results. He exceeds expectation with aggressive strategy and precision. I would definitely recommend his services to others. Never go to court by yourself, at the risk of points and increase insurance rates. Mark save me from these penalties, and he can help you too.”

  • Reseable and still the best.

    “Mr. Scheuerman was great. When we spoke over the phone and he made claims that he could get me this and that. Then when we got to court thats what he did and more. Not only can he keep his word but he was fair on the price of his service. Proving that the most expensive lawyer aren't the best. I am so glad i choose him to represent me.”
