How to drop a 1st offense disorderly conduct charge?
Question Details: I had a verbal altercation with my ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend at a public soccer field. She stated that I physically assaulted her and tried to have charges brought on me for assault and battery. After giving my statement to the officer he informed me that the witnesses were unwilling to support either story to whether or not I physically touched her, so he wrote me a ticket to appear in court for disorderly conduct. My record is clean and I would like for it to stay that way. What can I do to insure that?
There is no way to ensure this, because it is not under your control. IF the ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend asks for the charges to be dropped, it is very likely (not 100%, but very likely) that they will be. But otherewise, all you can do is discuss the matter with the prosecutor the day of trial and see if he or she will voluntarily choose to dismiss.
