Resisting or Evading Arrest

      Resisting or evading arrest covers a broad range of offenses, including Resisting Arrest, Evading Arrest with or without a Vehicle, and Fleeing a Police Officer. Contact a Fort Worth criminal lawyer if you have been arrested for resisting or evading arrest. An offense can range from a Class B Misdemeanor (punishable by up to 180 days in jail) to a 2nd Degree Felony (punishable by 2-20 years in jail). If you have been charged with an offense, a criminal defense attorney can advise you of the specific punishment range.

       Charging factors include whether a vehicle was used, whether a person suffered injury, strength of the evidence, and prior criminal history.

       Other than the potential for jail and fines, consequences may include mandatory Driver's License suspensions, random drug tests, completing a Drug Offender Education Program (DOEP), and/or community service. If you have been arrested for resisting or evading arrest, we recommend that you contact a criminal defense lawyer.
