Obstruction of Justice Charges in Illinois
According to the Illinois Criminal Code, a person obstructs justice when he or she intends to prevent the arrest or interfere with the prosecution or defense of himself or herself or any other person. This may be committed by destroying or altering evidence, concealing evidence, testifying falsely, witness tampering, fleeing a crime scene, fleeing a police officer or leaving the state to avoid providing testimony or information.
Obstruction of justice is a felony under state law and is subject to even harsher penalties if done for the benefit of a gang.
