If you have been arrested there is a decent chance you were charged with resisting arrest. Many officers add this charge whether there was a legitimate resist or simply because you were a pain to deal with. Our offices face these charges all the time and are ready to help you defend against them. While this charge is only a Class 2 Misdemeanor, the stigma of it carries more weight as an employer or potential employer will see it on your record. It is important because of all the adverse consequences of a conviction, that you hire an attorney that will be there to fight for your case. A resisting officer charge covers a broad range of activities, such as delaying or obstructing an officer carrying out his official duties. This is often the part of the statute that is over charged. There is case law that discusses resisting arrest and what it requires. Each case is very fact specific, so we recommend you consult an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the facts of your case and your options from there.
