Resisting Arrest Charges

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Sep 22, 2008 | 0 Comments

Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys are familiar with the subtle nuances of criminal law, and how police can utilize, or sometimes manipulate, the law. For example, a USC football player was arrested and charged with felony resisting a police officer. The charge may or may not be warranted, but the crime can be as ambiguous as it sounds. The player was arraigned last week in San Bernardino County Superior Court in connection with an incident at a party in Colton on Sept. 7. These types of crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. A misdemeanor conviction of Resisting Arrest or Battery on a Police Officer carries a maximum sentence of a year in County Jail and a $1000.00 fine. If you are charged with a Felony Battery on an Officer, you could face a State Prison Sentence of 16 months, 2 years or 3 years. A felony may also count as a strike in California's "Three Strikes Laws." Tagged as: resisting arrest pc 148
