Colorado Resisting Arrest, C.R.S. 18-8-103; Obstruction of Police, C.R.S. 18-8-104

Denver Criminal Attorney for Police Involved Crimes

Colorado Obstruction of Police, C.R.S. 18-8-104, and Resisting Arrest, C.R.S. 18-8-103, are both closely related police officer offenses in Colorado.  Each of them involve uncooperative behavior when police officers seek to make an arrest.

Aurora Obstruction of Police Lawyer

Obstruction charges in Denver, Aurora, Jefferson, Douglas and Adams County involve any type of interference with police in conducting an investigation. We recently defended a client accused of Obstruction of Police for failing to allow them onto his property. While this is an extreme example, it illustrates how far police will go to punish people who do not do everything they say. Many Colorado Police officers are convinced they are god and that they have the right to force you to comply with their every request.

Resisting Arrest Attorney in Jefferson County

Resisting arrest, on the other hand, is limited to physical resistance or threats to prevent an officer from physically placing an individual into police custody. Police officers will charge this offense after assaulting you, to justify their excessive force. Once you've been injured, Denver Police will need to set up an excuse for their abusive conduct. Denver Police are quick tempered and will physically assault anyone who offers any resistance to them.

Lakewood Crimes Against Police

Resisting Arrest and Obstruction of Police in cities like Lakewood and Aurora are two well intentioned crimes that ordinarily work as designed.  However, they are fertile ground for those police officers wanting an excuse to beat you up or punish you for exercising your constitutional rights. It is always best to be humble and respectful of officers, even if you don't want to help them arrest you or a friend.

If you have been charged with Colorado Obstruction of Police or Resisting Arrest, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us at once at 303-731-0719.  Together, we can protect your future.
