A: Resisting arrest is a serious felony offense. If the defendant has no prior felonies the punishment can be one of three things: 1) up to 3 years of probation, 2) up to three years of probation and up to one year in county jail, 3) .33 - 2 years in prison. If the accused has a prior felony conviction that is allegable then prison would be mandatory. If the accused has one prior felony the prison sentence is .75 - 2.75 years. If two or more priors the prison sentence is 2.25 - 5.75 years.
