Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer
If you have been charged with Resisting and Obstructing, the prosecutor believes you have knowingly and intentionally obstructed, resisted, opposed, assaulted, beat or wounded a law enforcement officer who was engaged in lawful acts or attempting to maintain the peace. Your acts or conduct must have actually interfered with the officer in carrying out those duties.
Resisting and Obstructing is a high court misdemeanor, so the penalty is up to 2 years incarceration or a $1,000 fine.
