Disturbing the Peace
Disturbing the Peace is one of the most common offenses for which people are cited or arrested, and because of this, many people don’t take these charges seriously. But a conviction is still a misdemeanor, and can result in heavy fines, probation, and even jail time. If a dismissal is not successfully negotiated, you will also have a criminal record which could impact your ability to pursue education, housing, obtain employment, volunteer, etc.
Further, there are many situations where police may arrest you if you do not believe you are doing anything wrong. Often this charge requires a subjective assessment of your behavior, and it can be difficult to determine if you were actually violating the law.
