New York Businessman Charged with Disorderly Conduct
New York businessman charged in the Rhode Island District Court (2nd Division), Newport County for:
- Disorderly Conduct, in violation of RIGL § 11-45
Newport Police observed an intoxicated man behaving in a disorderly manner outside of various businesses upon the closing of the bars. Police warned the man about his conduct and asked him to walk away. When the man refused, he was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct. The man was prosecuted in Rhode Island District Court (2nd Division). He hired Rhode Island Criminal Defense Lawyer, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter.
Case Result: Dismissed.
The man was from New York, had no criminal history, worked in Corporate America, and was only visiting Rhode Island on a short business trip. Over time, Attorney Calcagni and his team successfully advocated for the dismissal of this case in exchange for a contribution to a local non-profit organization. The case was subsequently sealed, leaving the man with a clean criminal record.
