Do I or should I get a lawyer for a disorderly conduct charge?
Question Details: I got into a fight and was charged with disorderly conduct for fighting, a Class E charge. I didn't know if I needed a lawyer or if it would end up just being a fine?
The type of disorderly conduct you describe is a violation, not a misdemeanor. It can result in a fine but not in imprisonment. Given how low a level it is, a lawyer probably can't help you: you should do as well without a lawyer as with one.
