Crimes Against Public Administration

Criminal charges are brought because of conduct that occurs during the course of the government’s investigation of other crimes. It refers to the crime of interfering with officials. In federal court, perjury and obstruction of justice are often charged together. Obstruction charges are made when someone other than a suspect has lied to investigating officers. If the person tried to protect a suspect or destroy evidence, he or she may be prosecuted. Obstruction can also include crimes committed by judges, prosecutors, attorneys general and elected officials.
