The following is current
criminal law on Obstructing plus amendments as of April. 2004: 2C:29-1. Obstructing Administration of Law or Other Governmental Function. a. A person commits
an offense if he purposely obstructs, impairs or perverts the administration of law or other governmental function or prevents or attempts to prevent a
public servant from lawfully performing an official function by means of flight, intimidation, force, violence, or physical interference or obstacle, or by
means of any independently unlawful act. This section does not apply to failure to perform a legal duty other than an official duty, or any other means of
avoiding compliance with law without affirmative interference with governmental functions.
b. An offense under this section is a crime of the fourth
degree if the actor obstructs the detection or investigation of a crime or the prosecution of a person for a crime, otherwise it is a disorderly persons
offense. The offense is a crime of the third degree if the conduct which the actor knows has been charged or is liable to be charged against him would
constitute a crime of the second degree or greater. The offense is a crime of the fourth degree if such conduct would constitute a crime of the third degree.
Otherwise it is a disorderly persons offense.
If charged with any criminal offense, immediately schedule an appointment with a
criminal trial attorney. Don't rely on a real estate attorney, public defender or a family member who took a law class in school. When your life and job is
