Disturbing the Peace
In order to be convicted of the crime of Disturbing the Peace, the prosecutor must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the defendant engaged in conduct which most people would find to be unreasonably disruptive (such as making loud or disturbing noise; tumultuous or offensive conduct; threatening conduct; or conduct that is so offensive that is inherently likely to provoke an immediate violent reaction);
- That the defendant's actions were done intentional, and not by accident or mistake; and
- That the defendant did in fact annoy or disturb at least one person.
