Interfering with the work of police officers, crime investigators, regulatory agencies, government officials, or prosecutors can result in an obstruction of justice charge. Obstruction of justice may involve lying, concealing evidence, destroying or altering evidence, or providing a false alibi or testimony. Even if the charges against the accused are dropped or if the accused is found innocent, obstruction of justice charges may still stand and result in harsh penalties.
