Resisting Assaulting Police Officer – No Jail – Michigan

Our client was charged with three criminal charges: Count one, Assaulting, resisting, obstructing, a police officer causing injury; Count 2, Assaulting, resisting, obstructing, a police officer; and Count 3, Disorderly Person Drunk.

After the incident both police officers sought medical attention. Our client spent close to three days in jail before a judge issued a bond. Our client thought he was going to jail for sure. Today, we are happy to tell our client that his judge agreed not to put him in jail for the incident. On top of that we were able to get two out of three of the charges dismissed.

Resisting Obstructing a Police Officer

Depending on the degree a person is charged with, Resisting Obstructing a Police Officer can carry two years in prison to life. In this case, our client was facing one charge that carried two years, and one charge that carried four years due to the officer seeking medical attention for an injury.

Resisting Obstructing a Police Officer is a felony, which means a conviction can mean prison time.

Michigan criminal lawyer, Aaron J. Boria has experience with R and O charges of various degrees.

In this particular case our client was charged out of the 14A1 District Court in Ypsilanti. His case was bound over to the Washtenaw County Circuit Court and was heard by Judge Swartz.

We were able to convince Judge Swartz, that while our client’s actions did meet the elements of R and O, he was worth giving a second chance to. Judge Swartz agreed to give him a term of probation rather than the months in jail that the sentencing guidelines recommended.
