Criminal Defense Attorney in Ann Arbor Defends Resisting and Obstructing Arrests

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- When a police encounter turns into an arrest, even the slightest resistance from the civilian can result in an additional serious charge commonly referred to "Resist/Obstruct," or "R/O."

Dan Geherin, owner of the Geherin Law Group PLLC. is an ex-prosecutor and board-certified criminal defense attorney in Ann Arbor who exclusively handles cases with a criminal justice element.  As part of this practice, GLG represents hundreds of clients charged with R/O offenses each year.  His firm also handles civil rights cases in which police brutality is apparent.

Over the years, Dan has fielded questions like this:

"Is R/O a felony, or misdemeanor offense?"

"Will I go to jail or prison for R/O?"

"Can I resist an unlawful arrest?"

"How can I prove my innocence (or show that police acted improperly) if it's my word vs. theirs?"
