Sometimes during a traffic stop or other action by police officers, things escalate quickly and get out of hand. Maybe you had a few beers with your friends and got into a scuffle. Police arrived to break it up and you found yourself struggling to evade their grasp. Before you realize what had happened, you’re facing criminal charges for resisting arrest or obstructing an officer, or worse yet, battery on a law enforcement officer.
If you find yourself in this situation, you need a skilled criminal defense lawyer to help you explore your options.
A criminal conviction can impact you for the rest of your life. Our attorney at Martens Law Office, P.C., in Boise, has extensive experience with these matters and will explore every option that is legally possible.

The Consequences Can Be Serious
These charges commonly accompany a charge for driving under the influence (DUI). During a DUI arrest, things can get out of hand and snowball into a more serious situation when the arrest is resisted. Attorney Jared Martens has a successful track record of getting these charges against his clients dismissed when the underlying DUI charge is dealt with.
Whether you were arrested for resisting arrest or obstructing an officer by giving false information, a conviction could result in you spending six months of your life in jail. If you are facing criminal charges, you need to take it seriously and do everything in your power to keep a conviction off your record.
