What is the definition of obstructing a police officer?

In Seattle obstructing a police officer or a law enforcement officer is defined as “willfully hindering, delaying, or obstructing any law enforcement officer while he or she is performing his or her duties.”

I’ve been charged with obstructing a police officer. What will happen to me?

A law enforcement or police officer can be a sheriff or officer in the sheriff's department, a state policeman, a patrol officer, or any authority designated to enforce fire, building, zoning, and life and safety codes.

Obstructing a police officer can either be a direct obstruction or resisting an authority on duty. Obstruction can be considered as any act of lying, withholding information or evidence, or the act of blocking or delaying the officer either verbally or physically. The obstruction must be done with both purpose and intent. However, depending on the court’s decision, and the lawyer’s defense any type of interference with an officer’s work can be considered an obstruction.

In Seattle, obstructing a police officer is a gross misdemeanor. While a gross misdemeanor is more serious than a misdemeanor, it still falls under the classification of a minor crime as opposed to a more serious crime. Misdemeanors typically involve petty theft, simple assault or driving under the influence – and the maximum sentence is generally one year in county jail and/or $5,000 in fines.

Why hire a Seattle police officer obstruction attorney?
