New York Criminal Attorneys With the Experience to Defend Obstruction of Justice Charges
OBSTRUCTION or OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE charges are those charges placed against an individual who has knowingly lied to law enforcement and prosecutors in order to protect another individual or change the outcome of a case (also known as “perverting the course of justice”). OBSTRUCTION charges can also be leveled when an individual destroys potential evidence in a case—even if that individual was not compelled to present such evidence to law enforcement.
How your OBSTRUCTION charges play out in the courts is dependent upon the severity of the initial charge (drug possession versus murder), your relationship to the defendant, and motives and intentions. If you have been accused of OBSTRUCTION of JUSTICE you should consult with an attorney. Our NYC DEFENSE ATTORNEYS have a great track record in this area, working to dismiss charges before they are brought before the courts.
