My boyfriend was walking home and saw a car that had been pulled over by a police car. He was walking towards the scene when the officer started yelling at him to get back. He did step back, but then the officer's partner showed up and issued him a ticket for Obstruction of Justice.
He thinks he should fight it. I would like to know a few things: 1.) What is the penalty for obstruction of justice? 2.) if he pays the ticket, how long is it on his record? what kind of violation is it? will it hurt him to have it on his record? 3.) will this affect his diversion for a DUI, which he completed the month before the obstruction charge?
