Oftentimes, people charged with domestic disorderly conduct fail to realize the serious nature of the crime that they have been charged with. In addition to a maximum penalty of six months in jail, a conviction for the offense of domestic disorderly conduct in Rhode Island triggers mandatory domestic violence penalties. These include: (1) a twenty week batters’ intervention program, (2) prohibitions on the possession, ownership, and transfer of firearms and ammunition, and (3) extended waiting periods for the expungement of the case from your criminal record.
