Resisting without Violence

Resisting arrest without violence is similar to an obstructing justice charge in the State of Florida. This is when a person interferes with a police officer performing their duties or job functions without doing physical damage or bodily harm to the police officer. Many times, the person arrested for resisting without violence may not even know or understand what they are being charged with. Also, it is often difficult for the state to prove their case in these types of offenses, since without violence or the threat of violence, it is hard to prove how the individual was resisting arrest.

 

If you or a loved one is being charged with resisting without violence, it can be very beneficial to your overall case to contact an experienced Florida criminal defense lawyer. Resisting without violence is typically a misdemeanor offense, but there is no reason to let this kind of arrest spoil your reputation or criminal record. Many times, these types of charges are accompanied by other criminal charges. If this is the case, a Florida criminal defense lawyer can help protect your freedom and stand up for your rights in court.

 

It is common for some people to be wrongfully accused of resisting without violence, since these kinds of laws open the door to abuse among law enforcement officers. Far too many people say that they were simply asking a question or wanting clarification about something, when their statements were blown out of proportion by police officers. Resisting without violence is a charge that police officers can tack onto existing charges or add simply when they feel like exercising their authority over an individual. This results in the violation of others' civil liberties.

 

The law can be confusing. The court system can be intimidating. Being arrested is scary, and there is no reason why someone should have to go through all of that alone. Whether you are being charged with resisting without violence or some other type of criminal offense in the state of Florida, there are criminal defense lawyers that can help you. T.
