If it's one lesson that's been drilled into most of us since we were kids it is that you do what a police officer tells you to do. If you don't you're risking any and all manner of consequence - immediate and possibly over the long hall. (Many of you, I'm sure have seen what can happen to individuals who resist the request/demands of a peace officer. Often, it isn't pretty. It can also lead to additional criminal charges.) If you or someone you love has found him or herself facing this dilemma, you first, best step should be to contact an experience Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney.
The act of obstructing justice takes on many forms. In Minnesota, the law defines it as --- interference with the work of law enforcement, including peace officers, prosecutors and federal authorities. Examples include:
- Fleeing A Police Officer In A Motor Vehicle;
- Warning A Subject of Police Investigation;
- Witness Tampering; and
- Interference With A Dead Body
