Resisting With Violence
Police officers will often tack on an additional charge of Resisting With Violence when the defendant gives the officer difficulty during their encounter. It is important to remember that the State need not prove that the officer suffered an injury. The State only needs to prove that the defendant restricted, obstructed, or opposed an officer’s lawful command.
