The criminal justice system only runs smoothly if criminal suspects cooperate. Unfortunately, many defendants end up breaking the law by committing a crime against the justice system. They might resist arrest or try to evade the police. Or they may fail to appear in court after being released on bail. Defendants on parole can also violate a condition of their release, which might require them to go back behind bars.

If you are suspected of any of these violations, please contact our California criminal defense lawyers. My Rights Law understands the importance of fighting all criminal charges, even misdemeanor offenses. Prosecutors often add charges for crimes against justice on top of other offenses. You need a seasoned legal advocate to help dig you out from the avalanche of criminal charges.

Parole Violation

Parolees must agree to abide by certain conditions of their parole and avoid committing new crimes while out of jail. If you violate any condition or break another law, the state can revoke your parole. That means you will likely end up back behind bars. Helpfully, defendants have a right to a revocation hearing and the ability to confront witnesses and present evidence. If your parole is revoked, you can end up back in jail for at least a year.[1] If you committed another crime while on parole, you might also face additional criminal charges and longer prison sentences. Contact a California criminal defense attorney today to fight any revocation.

Resisting Arrest: PC 148

You cannot willfully resist, obstruct, or delay a peace officer or emergency medical technician performing official duties. Under Penal Code 148 PC, you can face misdemeanor charges with a year in county jail and a $1,000 fine for a conviction.[2] The law doesn’t require that you hurt an officer or assault them. Instead, it is enough for a criminal conviction to delay or impede the performance of their official duties. We have seen prosecutors throw resisting arrest charges on defendants for no other purpose than their brief struggle or foot chase.

Evading Arrest: Vehicle Code 2800.1 & 2800.2

When a police officer tries to pull you over, California law requires that you stop. Vehicle Code 2800.1 criminalizes any attempt to willfully evade the police chasing you in a motor vehicle.[3] The law has technical requirements that the officer must have sirens on and at least one red light on and visible. This is a misdemeanor offense with maximum penalties of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

However, if you drove recklessly to evade police, you can face reckless evading charges under California Vehicle Code 2800.2.[4] This offense can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. You face up to three years in prison for a felony charge if convicted.

Arrest Warrants

Judges issue arrest warrants when a law enforcement agency wants to arrest someone suspected of a crime. These warrants must be backed up by probable cause and contain other requirements, such as your name and the date it was issued. California criminal law limits when police officers can arrest someone for a misdemeanor or felony, but thousands of people are arrested every week. If you have an arrest warrant, you should immediately meet with an attorney. It might be possible to get the warrant withdrawn or to turn yourself in and avoid the embarrassment of being cuffed in front of colleagues or family.

Failure to Appear: 1320 PC & 1320.5 PC

Criminal defendants must appear in court for arraignment, trials, and sentencing. If they skip out and don’t show up, a judge can issue a bench warrant for their arrest. California has two Failure to Appear statutes that you can find in California Penal Code 1320 and 1320.5.[5] These statutes make it a crime to willfully fail to appear in court when required after being released on your own recognizance or bail.

Your punishment depends on the crime for which you are requested to appear in court. If it’s a misdemeanor, your failure to appear is also a misdemeanor offense. You can face up to 6 months in county jail and fines. However, if you have failed to appear for a felony, you have committed another felony. In that case, you are facing 1-3 years behind bars as well as fines. Contact a California criminal defense attorney right away to protect your freedom.

California Criminal Defense Attorneys

Crimes against justice can create a snowball effect where you face more time in jail and more strikes on your record. Don’t let this happen to you. Anyone can make a mistake, especially when their adrenaline is pumping. But no one should end up in jail for a year or more because they failed to surrender to the authorities immediately.

You should quickly access the services of a seasoned California criminal defense attorney to fight off these charges. Contact a My Rights Law crimes against justice lawyer to learn more by calling or sending us a message. We will describe your options in a confidential consultation.

I had a difficult case that I was trying to fight from outside the state it was turned down twice. Once by the DA, and the second time by the judge, they continued to fight for me, and got the results I was looking for. They really do care about their clients and will not stop fighting till they get you the results you want.

I found myself facing a DUI and scared to death. From the very start of the initial consultation, Attorney Bobby Shamuilian put me at ease. They handled my DMV Hearing and the court proceeding and truly fought for me. They were always attentive to my phone calls and emails, keeping me informed. They were able to get me a reduced charged so that I do not have a DUI on my record. I am so thankful to have retained them for my case.

I couldn’t be happier with the service we received. From the very beginning I could tell that these lawyers knew a lot about DUI cases and throughout our court days they went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared for whatever might come our way. They definitely prepare you for the worst but get you the best. They covered every single base and we got an amazing outcome. I would recommend them any day.

I am a person who believes in giving credit where credit is due and I absolutely need to say that Bobby is amazing. The thing that stood out about him initially was that he was actually empathetic and showed compassion about what we were going through… I would absolutely 150% recommend Bobby to any of my friends and family – he is such a genuine guy and knows how to do his job, and do it well.
