Obstructing Legal Process in the State of Minnesota effectively means that you have messed with with the police, firefighters and other government officials ... in their official capacity.  This also includes interfering with the jobs of investigators, prosecutors, regulatory agencies, and other state or federal governmentworkers .

If you have been accused of this offense, an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney can help you and protect your best interests and your future --- so that you can move on with your life.

What is Obstructing Legal Process?

The following are some of the common types of obstructing justice allegations:

  • Witness tampering
  • Escaping custody
  • Falsely reporting a crime
  • Resisting arrest
  • Interfering with an investigation
  • Tampering with evidence

One investigators are looking for is an act that that interferes with legal processes --- like fleeing a police officer, escape, warning someone that they are being investigated, giving police a fake name, etc.


The penalties depend on the severity of the crime, such as the amount of violence or force that was used during the obstruction action. The resulting consequences can be significant fines and jail time, but the lifelong effect is in the criminal record that is established. 

What Should You Do?

If you, or someone you love, has been charged with obstruction, talk to a lawyer who can help you to get the charges dismissed or the consequences reduced so that the penalties are not as strict. Even if you cannot avoid conviction, you can avoid the maximum penalty so that you can move forward with your life sooner.
