How to Beat an Obstruction of Justice Charge in Orlando

Obstruction of justice is a broad category that includes crimes like perjury, resisting, and trying to escape police custody. For example, even obstructing an officer while he is engaged in “legal duty” can equate to a criminal arrest in Orlando, FL under certain circumstances. While mere words are usually not enough to result in the crime of resisting, that does not change the fact you might find yourself under arrest anyway. Additionaly, a person with knowledge of a crime may fear for their own wellbeing should they betray the criminal. Panella Law Firm’s legal team will make sure to share your side of the story in court.
