Legal Question

Asked on: 10/16/12, 2:11 pm

i was charged with contempt of court and sentenced to 24 hrs in jail for swearing in the court room 2 weeks ago. Now today i received a citation and letter from the sheriff dept. stating that i am being charged with a disorderly conduct for the same incident of the the contempt and need to appear in court for it and i am wondering if that's legal? i am confused because that sounds like double jeopardy to me
