Obstruction of Justice/Resisting Arrest

Obstruction of Justice/Resisting Arrest

Obstruction of justice and resisting arrest are legal terms that describe unlawful acts that people partake in to obstruct, hinder, or delay the administration of justice.  These terms apply to law enforcement, courts, judges, and the government.  For example, if a person evades police who are trying to make an arrest, he/she can be charged with obstruction of justice/resisting arrest.  Additionally, a person that gives false testimony in court can be charged with perjury, as well as obstruction of justice.  Other examples of obstruction of justice include:

  • bribing witnesses;
  • not reporting crimes;
  • perjury;
  • resisting a lawful arrest;
  • contempt of court;
  • aiding & abetting; and
  • threatening or intimidating jurors.

In Florida, obstruction of justice/resisting arrest usually refers to the act of interference in any work that relates to police officers, prosecutors, investigators, federal agencies, judges, or other government officials. When facing obstruction of justice/resisting arrest charges, it is extremely important for a person to consult a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to start taking preventative measures against a conviction and heavy penalties.

How an Attorney Can Help

After a person has been charged with a crime such as obstruction of justice/resisting arrest, it is important that they are informed of their legal rights and options.  The best way people can become informed throughout the legal process is by retaining the services of a criminal defense attorney who can continually protect the client’s best interests.  By working closely with the right attorney, people may be able to avoid conviction for obstruction of justice/resisting arrest and not have to deal with the life-altering consequences that are associated with most obstruction of justice convictions.
