Public Order & Obstruction of Justice

These offenses concern the functioning of the community, or the effective operation of law enforcement and the criminal justice system

Obstruction and Public Order crimes are offenses that concern the functioning of the community, or the effective operation of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. These crimes are typically viewed as having a direct effect on public order, and thus, these types of offenses are strongly prosecuted in Sarasota, Manatee, Venice and DeSoto and the State of Florida as a whole. The Office of the State Attorney will often seek jail and a conviction for even minor offenses.
