There are a number of potential charges that law enforcement and prosecutors can place on people when they wish to arrest someone but do not have a good legal or factual reason to do so. Often times, people are charged with Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Justice, or Obstructing a Police Officer.
Many times, our Springfield Criminal Defense Lawyers see the charge of Resisting Arrest when the arrestee was beaten or Tazed. Police officers claim that the reason the person was beaten was because he was acting violent or resisting arrest. This tactic provides Illinois police with a plausible story to justify their actions at the detriment of the accused.
Our Criminal Defense Attorneys have been successful in defending the accused of Resisting Arrest by obtaining records, videos, and call logs demonstrating our client was not resisting arrest. Medical records, dispatch calls and toxicology reports can be used to build a solid defense against the police’s story.
