  1. If you are charged with misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer, you face a maximum penalty of up to one year in the county jail. The sentencing range for a misdemeanor conviction of this type is 1-365 days in jail, all of which could be probated.

    If you are charged with felony obstruction of a law enforcement officer, you could face up to five years of incarceration in Georgia State Prison. The sentencing range for a felony conviction of this type is 1-5 years, all of which could be probated.

    You should consult the advice of a experienced criminal defense attorney whether you intend to fight the charge or enter a negotiated plea.
