What is “obstruction of justice?” The phrase refers to blocking the government or law enforcement during a police investigation, or technically any other federal business.

Definition of Misdemeanor Obstruction in Savannah

Sometimes obstructions of justice can be classified as misdemeanors rather than felonies.

A few examples of behaviors that would be called misdemeanor obstruction of justice include:

  • Offering information that is either false, misleading, or only partly true to any officer of law enforcement

  • Directly lying to a member of law enforcement

  • Running away from an officer during a legal stop

  • Disobeying the orders of an officer during a crime scene

Definition of Felony Obstruction in Savannah

While felony obstruction of justice also involves blocking a law enforcement official from doing their job in a knowledgeable and willful manner, the distinction is that felonies involve the use of force on the side of the defendant. This is where the penalties get very serious.

Some of the examples that the government would consider to be felony obstruction include:

  • Events where someone resists being arrested through the use of force

  • Any action of hitting or fighting an officer of the law

  • Simply threatening to use force against a member of law enforcement
