Disorderly Conduct Statute to be Amended

Michigan Legislature Working on Amending the Disorderly Conduct Statute to Criminalize the Disturbance of a Religious Meeting or Assembly

The Michigan legislature is working to amend Michigan’s Disorderly Conduct statute. The new law will criminalize the interruption or disturbance of people who are assembled for religious purposes when the assembly is clearly identified by signs or other means. It will not matter if the assembly is indoors or outdoors. A violation of the law will be punishable by a maximum of 93 days in jail, a fine of not more than $1,000 (plus costs), and up to 100 hours of community service.
