Resisting Arrest

Milford Resisting Arrest Attorney

Resisting Arrest is a criminal offense related to Obstructing Justice.  In Massachusetts, this most often involves resisting, obstructing or opposing a police officer who is attempting to carry out his or her legal duty. The person accused of Resisting Arrest would not necessarily have caused any bodily harm to the police officer. For this reason, it can be difficult for a person accused of Resisting Arrest to determine exactly what they did to Resist Arrest or otherwise interfere with law enforcement.

If you have been charged with Resisting Arrest, it is important that you consult a criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. You will likely face this criminal charge along with the offense you were arrested or questioned for.

A person accused of resisting may claim that they simply asked the officer a question or wanted to find out more about the situation before getting arrested or taken into custody. They may feel that the officer was trying to demonstrate his or her authority by charging them with resisting. It may be that you have been wrongfully accused of this offense. Attorney Brothers can help you by investigating the circumstances of your arrest and determining whether a situation was blown out of proportion by an over-zealous officer.
