What Is Disturbing The Peace Charge in New Orleans?

Well, disturbing the peace is a pretty typical misdemeanor criminal charge, it’s usually done under the city code, but it can also be done in the state code in New Orleans for the most part it’s given to people that had a bit too much to drink and it’s, you know, kind of being without, outside of the boundaries of normal behavior.

Disturbing the peace kind of goes along with a number of party crimes in New Orleans, a lot of times people were hanging out in the French Quarter on Bourbon Street listening to music drinking a little bit too much and they get arrested for public intoxication, disturbing the peace, criminal trespass, these are all kinds of typical things that people get arrested for in and out around the party environment in New Orleans.

    "I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
