Obstruction of Justice- Obstruction of Justice occurs where a person intends to interfere with an official proceeding, by doing things such as destroying evidence, or interfering with the duties of jurors or court officers. For a person to be convicted of obstructing justice, they must not only have the specific intent to obstruct the proceeding, but the person must know:

  1. that a proceeding was actually pending at the time; and
  2. there must be a connection between the person’s effort to interfere and the proceeding, and the person must know that they are intentionally interfering with a proceeding and that their interference will affect that proceeding.

There are several different ways a person may be charged with obstruction of justice.
