One of the more active summer destinations on the Jersey Shore is Sandy Hook, including Gunnison Beach. While consumption of alcohol is illegal on most beaches, this is not the case on federal parkland at Gateway National Recreation Area. Every summer at Sandy Hook there are incidents of disagreement, arguments and even physical encounters resulting from public intoxication and other behavior that is alleged to be unruly. Federal parks rangers frequently issue summonses for disorderly conduct, simple assault, obstruction and other violations when encounters like these occur.

Federal Disorderly Conduct Offense
The offense of disorderly conduct is set forth under the Code of Federal Regulation at 36 CFR 2.34 and is very similar to the New Jersey Disorderly Conduct Law. An individual commits this federal offense if they intend to cause public alarm, nuisance, jeopardy or violence, or knowingly or recklessly create a risk thereof, by committing any of the following acts: (1) fighting, threatening or violent behavior; (2) uses language or conduct likely to cause injury or incite a breach of peace; (3) makes unreasonable loud noise; or (4) creates a hazard or physically offensive condition. When an individual violates this law, he/she faces serious penalties and a conviction that can never be removed from their record. Federal convictions are not subject to expungement and this is an important reason to make absolutely certain the you obtain the best representation to your disorderly conduct charge.
Sandy Hook NJ Disorderly Conduct Lawyers
The venue where all Sandy Hook complaints are handled is the Federal District Court in Newark. This is a very different court than the typical forum for a disorderly conduct offense, namely, a local municipal court. This is, in fact, probably just about as extreme as you get into terms of formality. All charges are taken extremely serious by the Federal Magistrate, the Honorable Anthony Mautone. This is not a proceeding for an attorney who lacks experience appearing in federal court nor one that has limited exposure to criminal charges. The risk of a permanent criminal record is too significant to put your future in the hands of someone who lacks the skills necessary to effectively defend this charge. Our former prosecutors and highly knowledgeable lawyers are here to assist you and clearly have the expertise to insure that you succeed. Call us 24/7 at 732-450-8300 to speak to an attorney immediately.
