Disorderly conduct covers a wide range of behaviors that involve a public disturbance or breach of the peace. These charges generally involve abusive language that could lead to an assault, a disturbance at a public meeting, disruption of traffic, or disturbing a funeral.
Charges of domestic violence involve crimes that are committed against a family member, someone with whom you share or have shared a household, or someone with whom you share a child.
