Q: i have a freind who is charged with attempting to disarm a police officer, what is the potential outcome of that charge
we already have a lawyer and there are other charges as well from a domestic, i am the victim in the domestic but i am not pressing charges, so hopefully they will get dropped, this is also my partner. the thing that worries me the most is the other charge, i do not want to see him go to state prison, im hoping for time served and probation we are also looking at relocating to texas after all this is over. He has a house down there as well as family and a job waiting for him as well. i am just extremely stressed out and anxious over this whole situation that could have been avoided had i not instigated everything. i just need some answers, hope fully to calm me down. so im not so stressed out and worried about it, it also does not help that there is a no contact order between us as well and we cannot talk to each other.
A: It would depend on the circumstances but there are a myriad of charges that can come from the described activity. A person could be charged with Resisting Arrest, Recklessly Endangering another Person, Obstruction of Justice, Disorderly Conduct, Aggravated Assault, etc.
A: This isn't why you asked but you need to look at what you said. Abusive person. With sufficient temper to attempt to disarm an officer. You are thinking to relocate with the abusive person to Texas, where you'll be surrounded by his kinfolk. With all due respect, contact a womens shelter for the names of counselors who can help you process your conflicted feelings. Otherwise, the next time the police may figure "why bother?" And you could be in a world of real hurt.
