Obstruction of Justice

Obstruction of justice is a legal term that describes all unlawful acts that people partake in to obstruct, hinder, or delay the administration of justice. This term applies to law enforcement, courts, judges, and the government.

For example, if a person evades police who are trying to make an arrest, they can be charged. Additionally, a person that gives false testimony in court can be charged with perjury as well as obstruction of justice.

Examples of obstruction of justice include:

  • Bribing witnesses
  • Not reporting crimes
  • Perjury
  • Resisting arrest
  • Contempt of court
  • Aiding & abetting
  • Threatening or intimidating jurors

This usually refers to the act of interference in any work that relates to:

  • Police officers
  • Prosecutors
  • Federal agencies
  • Judges
  • Other government officials

Facing Charges?

When facing obstruction of justice 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.
