Defense of Obstructing Justice Offenses
While offenses such as murder, rape, and other crimes of violence do more harm to individuals and to the community, to law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges there are, perhaps, no more serious crimes than those which interfere with the system’s attempt to investigate, apprehend, prosecute, and punish those accused of crimes. The criminal justice system will tolerate no interference with its efforts to bring lawbreakers to justice. To judges and prosecutors, such interference threatens the very core of the system. Of course, dishonest law enforcement personnel, including prosecutors, and even judges, often do more to obstruct justice than the individuals accused of such offenses.
Offenses for impeding the administration of justice include:
Obstruction of Justice
False Police Report
Intimidating a Witness
Because prosecutors and judges take these obstruction of justice offenses so seriously, choosing the right defense lawyer to represent you is one of your most important decisions.
