Obstruction of Justice

Committing the crime of obstruction of justice is a very serious criminal offense. It is the crime of interfering with the administration and due process of the law. It includes the interference of any investigation or a criminal proceeding. In order to be charged, law enforcement must believe or have strong evidence that you influenced or attempted to influence a proceeding or an investigation in some manner.

A conviction for obstruction of justice can result in a jail term of up to 10 years, depending upon the obstruction committed. It can also result in heavy fines, community service, probation and a misdemeanor or felony charge on your criminal record.
