Crimes Against Justice
Many people are unaware that it is a crime to offend "justice" itself. "Justice" can include the courts, governing bodies, and public officials (such as lawmakers and police officers). Typically, crimes against the justice system involve some sort of disorderly or disrespectful conduct that questions the authority or intelligence of the legal system, including perjury, contempt of court, or fleeing from justice. Crimes that fall into this category carry similar consequences and penalties as other crimes, including fines and jail time. Below you will find information on crimes involving the justice system.
