What is “disturbing the peace”?

“Disturbing the peace” is very subjective and ambiguous. For that reason, the sentencing recommendations can vary depending on the prosecutor handling the case. Likewise, due to the subjective and ambiguous nature of the disturbing the peace statute, the sentence imposed can be vastly different based on the judge you have. There are many different conditions of a sentence that might be imposed upon disposition of this offence, including but not limited to, anger management, alcohol treatment and various types of counseling.
