"Disturbing the Peace" in Nevada (NRS 203.010)
Explained by Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyers

Nevada cops routinely cite good people for "breaching the peace" for doing nothing more than protesting, defending themselves or simply having a good time.  Our Las Vegas NV criminal defense lawyers have lots of experience in getting these cases dismissed.

But if you've been charged with a more serious offense like breaking Nevada solicitation law1 or even Nevada battery domestic violence law,2 then it may be in your interest to plead to something minor like  "breach of peace" to get the other charges dismissed.

If you've been arrested and charged in Las Vegas, Reno, or elsewhere in the state, then call our Nevada criminal defense attorneys at 702-DEFENSE (702-333-3673) for a free consultation about how our Nevada criminal defense attorneys might be able to win a reduction or dismissal of your charges.
