Resisting Obstructing in Michigan

Resisting and Obstructing is usually charged as a felony. There are four degrees of resisting and obstructing with the lowest being punishable by up to two years in prison and the highest being life.

In this particular case our client was charged with a misdemeanor under the Hamtramck City Ordinance. Had he been convicted he could have spent months in jail.

Resisting and Obstructing is usually charged when someone assault an officer. This means that someone is being accused of hitting, pushing, or shoving a police officer or making an officer think that you are going to hit, push, or shove them.

It is possible to face an obstructing charge or resisting charge for pulling away while an officer is trying to arrest you. This is often time over exaggerated by police when they have decided to really stick charges to someone.
