Possibly. It's not clear if your previous case include probation, and, if so, what the terms of that probation may be. I suggest calling a couple of PA attorneys that you can find on avvo, explaining your situation in more detail, and going from there. Good luck.
You need to have a local attorney review your paperwork and advise you.

You should definitely consult with an attorney. You could indeed face further sanctions on the underage drinking charge if you have not yet satisfied all of the elements of your sentence. Furthermore, the fact that this is your second criminal charge in 3 months will not be looked upon with favor if and when the court imposes sentence. You will want an effective advocate on your side.
Without knowing all of the facts and circumstances, I can not tell you properly. but it sounds like it might.
You need to consider the effect that these charges will have on your ability to get and keep job. I represent men and women throughout PA and NJ who seek to minimize their criminal records. The Underage Drinking charge can be cleared when you turn 21, but you have to proactively act to expunge it. If you are convicted of the Disorderly Conduct charge, assuming it is a Summary Offense, it will be on your record for at least five years.
Were these in the same court? A decent lawyer maybe able to advocate on your behalf to get this reduced or thrown out. I am happy to speak with you, if you are interested.
I will serve as someone's attorney only after a written agreement has been reviewed and signed. Please feel free to contact me at (610) 393-3868 if you would like more information or to inquire about my services.
