The resisting arrest law is contained at N.J.S.A. 2C:29-2. An individual is exposed to a disorderly persons offense for resisting arrest, a charge falling under municipal court jurisdiction, if they "purposely prevents or attempts to prevent a law enforcement officer from effecting an arrest". The violation is enhanced to a fourth degree crime, the lowest felony grade, when flight is used. This should be distinguished from eluding which is use of an automobile to resist. Resisting arrest is enhanced to a third degree crime if threats or physical force is used to resist or the accused creates a substantial risk of injury. One of the most important things you need to know about this offense is that you have no right to resist an unlawful and/or unwarranted arrest. In other words, it is not a defense to a 2C:29-2 charge that you did nothing wrong in the first place.

A disorderly persons offense for resisting arrest results in up to a $1,000 fine and six months in jail. Fourth degree resisting arrest carries a $10,000 fine and up to eighteen months in state prison. The penalties for third degree resisting arrest include a $15,000 fine and up to 5 years of imprisonment.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
