Your New York Criminal Attorney Will Help You Fight a Charge of Perjury
If you have been accused of perjury, you should know that this is a serious crime that can sometimes involve jail time. Prosecutors do not take perjury cases lightly, so you should contact an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. Much like obstruction of justice charges, perjury charges are brought against individuals who have knowingly lied to law enforcement and prosecutors in order to either protect themselves or another individual, or to attempt to change the outcome of a case, which is also known as “perverting the course of justice.” Unlike obstruction of justice, however, perjury is committed while under oath. An individual can be under oath when they are testifying in court, or when they are being interviewed in pre-trial depositions. Because the individual is under oath, they will face much more stringent and serious penalties than the average obstruction of justice charge.
Penalties for Committing Perjury in the United States
Even though perjury is a non-violent, non-drug-related offense, prosecutors take it very seriously and will pursue serious penalties for the accused. Because perjury has the potential to subvert justice and potentially contribute to a wrongful conviction or “miscarriage of justice,” Federal law makes perjury a crime punishable by up to five years in prison. If you are accused of perjury, you need an attorney who can represent you effectively and passionately.
Lying under oath can lead to devastating penalties
Jail time is a serious consequence, as is a felony conviction. Both of these penalties can have a great impact on your future and your life.
