Obstruction of Justice
Los Angeles White Collar Crime Lawyer
Diamond & Associates has extensive experience defending clients faced with the serious charge of obstruction of justice. Obstruction of justice is a crime in which an individual or group interferes with the workings of police, prosecutors, regulatory agencies or other officials. It usually applies to situations in which an individual, that is not a suspect in a case, is accused of lying while being questioned by investigating officers.
In order to be convicted, it must be proved that the individual had knowledge of the investigation and intentionally acted in order to obstruct or interfere with the investigative proceedings. It is common for the charges to be applied to alteration, concealment, or destruction of documents, or the giving of false testimony, or encouraging others to do so. Tampering with witnesses in any way can also fall under the category of obstruction of justice. If you have been charged with obstruction of justice, it is very important that you immediately contact a Los Angeles white collar crimes attorney in order to move forward with the appropriate legal defense actions.
