The impeding of those who seek justice in a court, or of those who have duties or powers of administering justice therein; includes attempting to influence, intimidate or impede any juror, witness or officer in any court regarding the discharge of his duty.
EXAMPLE: Geneva possesses telephone recordings of a contractor offering a bribe to secure a construction grant. When Mack, another contractor, sues to have the grant overturned because of the possibility of a bribe, he requests that Geneva give him the recordings. If Geneva destroys or otherwise loses the recordings after they are requested, she will be charged with obstruction of justice.
Statutes addressing this subject may reach beyond interference with the judicial process and also proscribe interference with police officers and other such administrative officials.
See embracery; misprision of felony.
