Q: Does a police officer have to charge you with obstruction.

I was assaulted by my spouse when asked if she hit me I said no. I didnt want her to get into trouble. When she gave her statement she said she hit me so when asked again I said yes. I didnt currently get charged with it but would I have been told if I was getting charged ?

when there is a DV call, the officer usually arrests 1 of the parties.

was she arrested?

i wouldn't worry about you and note that the DA charges, not the officer.

call a local lawyer for your wife

no lawyer, in my opinion, can evaluate the facts like these, without a consultation.

if you can't find a lawyer, and I assume that is the case, you can always go into small claims court where you can sue for up to $10k without a lawyer.

It depends!

The victim is the People of the State of Calif and thus up to the DA.

They can pursue a case based on what you told the police and threaten you with criminal charges if you lie on the stand.

Talk to a good criminal attorney to protect yourself.

this type of question would best be presented to his lawyer...who has all the info.

if police try to stop you and you don't stop, then whether you did something or not is probably not the issue.
