When a Disturbing the Peace Charge Is a Good Thing
In many cases, the goal is to get a charge reduced to disturbing the peace or disorderly conduct. If you are facing charges for domestic battery, an experienced attorney may be able to help you plead the charges down to disturbing the peace, which is a much less serious crime. That’s a much better option than facing the harsh penalties that come with a domestic violence conviction. This is also an option for other cases including fighting in public or shooting firearms in an inappropriate location.
