Obstruction of Justice 55 Years of Fierce Representation Against Federal Charges

Obstruction of Justice Charges in Houston

Accused of interfering with an investigation?

In the United States, it is illegal to knowingly and intentionally interfere with the work of law enforcement, government agencies, and prosecutors during their investigations. Oftentimes, these charges are brought against a person when it is discovered that someone other than the suspect may have intentionally misled or lied to investigating officers.

This can include destroying evidence, fraudulently reporting a crime, or giving a false alibi to protect a suspect. If you have been charged with obstruction of justice, it is crucial you contact a skilled federal criminal defense lawyer from Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C. to protect yourself against serious consequences.

Contact the firm online today at (713) 364-9913 to get started towards building your defense.

Obstruction According to the US Code

According to 18 U.S.C. § 1510: US Code – Section 1510, those who willingly and knowingly obstruct or delay a criminal investigation can face serious fines and a maximum of five years in prison. Furthermore, under 18 U.S.C. § 1512, anyone who kills or attempts to kill another person with the intention of preventing them from testifying in court can be found guilty of tampering and face up to 30 years in prison.

Tampering can also include using or threatening physical force against a witness to delay or prevent their testimony. Retaliation against witnesses and informants with physical harm is similarly prohibited, carrying up to 20 years in prison upon conviction. While penalties for this type of offense will vary depending on the specific circumstances, all obstruction charges are extremely serious and must be handled by a skilled attorney to maximize one's chances of securing a desirable outcome.
