Dallas Retaliation Attorney

If you’ve been arrested or charged with the crime of obstruction or retaliation, you could be looking at serious jail time.  In Texas, you can be arrested if it’s alleged that you’ve threatened or harmed someone.  To be charged under the obstruction or retaliation statute, the threat or harm that’s alleged must be in retaliation against someone who’s a public servant, witness, prospective witness, informant, or someone whom you believe has

reported a crime (or intends to do so).  In most cases, obstruction or retaliation is a third degree felony, punishable by 2 to 10 years in state prison, and a fine of up to $10,000 fine.  However, if it’s alleged that you committed obstruction or retaliation against a juror, the offense is charged as a second degree felony, with a penalty range of 2 to 20 years in the penitentiary and a up to a $10,000 fine.
