Disturbing the Peace Charges in The Delmar Loop, St Louis - for as little as $450


There are a number of tickets written each year for Disturbing the Peace in the Delmar Loop of St Louis.  Most of the time, a police officer will hand out this charge to someone who is unruly after leaving the bars (or one of the other venues available in The Loop). 

But unfortunately, most people do not think that this type of charge is all that big of a deal.  They treat it as if it were nothing to be worried about.  This is a big mistake.


The crime of Disturbing the Peace in St Louis is a Class B Misdemeanor.  This kind of charge can come with up to six (6) months of jail time and a $500 fine.  So if you were to plead guilty to the charge, then it would go onto your permanent record.  Once it is on your permanent record, there is no way to get it off (hence the term “permanent”).

This can have a negative effect on your future ability to get a job (or rent an apartment, or take out a student loan).  But it does not have to end up this way!!  We will want to review all the pertinent facts of your case, explain all of your rights and options, answer all of your questions, and help guide you through the process from start to finish.

Many times, we will be able to get the charges reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which would not show up on your record at all).  And this is far better than simply pleading guilty!!
