Case 3: Felony Obstruction PDF Print E-mail
My client was being served with civil papers by a constable, who happened to also be a sheriff deputy. The constable thought my client was acting suspicious and was running his name when my client took off running. During the chase the constable sustained injures. As a result, my client was charged with felony obstruction and other misdemeanors. The state offered my client two years in probation and two years in prison.

I spoke with the officer prior to trial and lucky for my client he was a very honest guy who admitted he never identified himself as a law enforcement officer. I filed a motion to suppress that the constable illegally detained my client allowing my client to resist the unlawful arrest. The judge granted the motion on all charges except the felony obstruction. I advised my client to waive his right to a jury trial and have the case heard in front of the judge where I would move for a directed verdict because the state couldn’t prove that my client knew he was obstructing a law enforcement officer. After almost thirty minutes of debate, the judge granted the motion for directed verdict.
