Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer

Usually, Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer is charged as a felony; however, in certain cities there is an ordinance that allows them to charge it as a misdemeanor, with a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail.

In Livonia there is a good chance you would be charged with the misdemeanor unless there is an injury to the officer. We see felonies charged more frequently for less severe actions in Oakland County and Washtenaw County, than in Wayne.

This is an incredibly serious offense; if you are charged with the felony you could face up to two years in prison for the lowest degree.

In many cases, police and prosecution will over charge a case with this offense because the person accused of a crime swore at an officer or flinched when being grabbed by a police officer.

This charge is often used as well when an arrest was made on very weak facts.
