So last night during the march I joined the legions of Occupy arrestees. As most people I was given disorderly conduct. My question is what is the average penalty they're given out for these. Also should I just plead guilty. I know I should plead not guilty given the charge but the issue is I really can't afford to keep going back to NYC, literally can't do it. I heard if you plead not guilty you have to go back to court the next day right off the bat, that'd be over $80 at the least in just 2 days, coupled with whatever fine they give me for this. I don't want to plead guilty but it seems the better option than having an arrest warrant out in the state of New York over not being able to get to court over a simple violation.
