I’ve been charged with resisting arrest. What will happen to me?

In Seattle, resisting arrest is a criminal charge for taking at least one of the following actions while being arrested:

  • Fleeing a police officer.
  • Threatening a police officer with physical violence.
  • Physically struggling to avoid being restrained such as being handcuffed or put into the police vehicle.
  • Attacking a police officer.
  • Providing an officer with false identification (either verbally or by presentation of a false official document, i.e. a fake ID).

In Washington State, resisting arrest is a misdemeanor that can carry a maximum penalty of ninety days in jail and a one-thousand dollar fine. Additionally, the court can impose probationary conditions that may last up to two years.

Why hiring a Seattle resisting arrest lawyer can make the difference.

As a consequence of recent police and civilian conflicts and resulting deaths, Seattle resisting arrest charges have taken on heightened significance in local courts. Our Seattle resisting arrest lawyers are prepared to handle these very serious charges and deal with the Seattle criminal court mindset that has arisen due to recent events. We are also prepared to deal with other charges you may be facing - such as DUI, criminal trespassing, domestic violence, and hit-and-run.

If you have been charged with resisting arrest, you should seek proper legal representation immediately in order to protect your rights, freedom, and future. In fact, many resisting arrest cases are a misunderstanding, so it is crucial to have your story explained in detail, and by lawyers who understand the legal implications.
