For more info: http://www.shouselaw.com/contempt-court-laws.html California Penal Code 166 PC defines the crime of contempt of court. This crime is committed by being excessively loud or belligerent, refusing to cooperate as a witness, or disobeying a court order. Penal Code 166 PC makes contempt of court a misdemeanor, and penalties include up to 6 months jail. But as this former prosecutor explains, a good criminal defense lawyer can often clear up the issue with the court and judge, and get the charges dismissed.
