    New York Criminal Attorneys Can Defend Obstruction of Justice Charges

    If you have been accused of obstructing justice, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case. The criminal charge of “obstruction” or “obstruction of justice” is an offense that occurs when an individual has knowingly lied to law enforcement and prosecutors in order to protect another individual or change the outcome of a criminal case. Obstruction can sometimes also be known as “perverting the course of justice.” Obstruction charges can also be levied when an individual destroys potential evidence in a case—even if that individual was not compelled to present such evidence to law enforcement.

    Penalties for Obstruction of Justice

    If you have been accused of obstruction of justice, you are probably wondering what kind of penalties you could be facing. How your obstruction charge plays out in the court depends the severity of the initial charge you are accused of obstructing. For example, obstruction of a murder investigation may carry heavier penalties than obstruction of a drug possession claim. The penalties for obstruction also vary depending on your relationship with the defendant and your relationship to the defendant, and motives and intentions.

    If the prosecution has reason to believe that you were knowingly obstructing their investigation with the intent to destroy incriminating evidence of a criminal associate, they will not take the obstruction charge lightly.

    My two years old divorce case went in different direction once I changed my attorneys. When I told my ex's lawyer that I hired Bukh & Assoc. she began to change her attitude. You should hear her before and after. Thank you from all of us. I wish I knew your phone number at the very beginning.
