If you are charged with obstruction of justice, get help from an experienced lawyer
Obstruction of justice is a broad term that includes trying to prevent a legal action or interfering with the administration of civil or criminal judicial action. It often includes crimes committed by judges and government officials. Because it is considered a crime that undermines our judicial system, obstruction of justice comes with severe penalties. Some examples of obstruction of justice include:
- Bribery or attempting to influence or injure a victim, officer or juror
- Witness tampering or abuse of power
- Retaliating against an informant, victim or witness
- Withholding or destroying evidence
- Attempting to influence testimony
- Lying to investigators or giving false testimony
- Interfering with proceedings of government agencies, departments or committees
- Interfering with law enforcement officers
- Failure to prosecute judges or government officials
People are charged with obstruction of justice when they intentionally interfere with an official investigation or judicial proceeding. So, to be convicted of obstructing justice, prosecutors must prove that you intended to obstruct. They must also prove that you knew a proceeding or investigation was underway.
Obstruction of justice can be a misdemeanor or a felony
Depending on the circumstances, obstruction of justice might be considered a misdemeanor or a felony. For example, lying when you are are stopped by police for speeding will probably be a misdemeanor and carry a fine. Lying to a federal judge may be a felony and could result in imprisonment for up to 10 years.
