Local ordinance violations may seem harmless to the violators, but the law can still impose fines and jail time. Although many local ordinance violations are misdemeanor offenses, you can still find yourself with a criminal record. Disturbing the peace and noise ordinance violations are considered forms of disorderly conduct. Some other examples of disorderly conduct include acts such as the “maintaining a disorderly house,” meaning the use of one’s home as a place for gaming or drinking.
In Georgia, violators of local conduct laws are subject to one year imprisonment and up to $1,000 in fines. If you’ve been cited with violating a local ordinance, or charged for disorderly conduct, you should seek the advice of an attorney so that your rights are protected.
