    Default New York Penal Code 240.20-2 Disorderly Conduct Violation

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York

    A Staten Island Police Officer presented me with a summons for 240.02-2
    Disorderly Conduct Violation, excessive noise. He stated to me that the he felt the exhaust in my vehicle was too loud.

    I asked him if this was a criminal offense, he stated no, just a violation, it will be a $20.00 fine, but I would have to appear in court.

    I looked up 240.02 on line and verified that the NYS Penal Code classifies this offense as a "violation"

    Will this offense appear as a criminal violation in a background check?
    Will this show up on my credit rating?
    Basically, are their farther reaching consequences to this violation then meets the eye?

    There are plenty of stories of violations showing up in background checks, even though they're classified as non-criminal. I wouldn't expect it to affect your credit, and none of the three major credit bureaus list criminal convictions on their reports.

    You have to go to court anyway, so.... Fix your exhaust, take proof of the repair with you to court, and see if you can get a dismissal. It's generally no skin off their nose to give you a "dismissal on payment of costs" meaning you pay the fine but they dismiss the ticket.
