It is unlikely that a summary Disorderly conduct will hurt your school or employment opportunities. That said if the charge was a summary you can petition to have the charge expunged five years after you were found guilty.


I agree with Attorney Zucker.

In fact, I know several people who have gone on to have successful professional careers (Doctor/Lawyer) even with a disorderly on their record.

It's all about the context, though.
