Charges of Tampering with Evidence can be very tricky because of the fact that the evidence can't be altered or destroyed in any way, shape, or form. When evidence is thrown from the conveyance, like in this particular case, the evidence was easy to recover and retained its original condition. It took a solid defense to prove that tampering was not the appropriate charge for the situation.

You will be charged with tampering of evidence if you have altered, destroyed, concealed or removed any document or thing which will impair its availability in any investigation or proceeding. This type of felony presupposes that another crime has been committed and the person is concealing said crime. This will cause severe consequences as the state is quite stern on persons charged with this type of crime. The intent of destroying the evidence will give the state an impression that the offender has indeed committed an offense and is preventing the law enforcers from discovering it. Tampering of evidence is a third degree felony that can cause you five years imprisonment, 5 years of probation and $5000 fine. Thus it is recommended that you contact a lawyer to discuss available options. With your lawyer's assistance he may be able to have the case dismissed or lessen the penalties imposed against you depending on the facts of your case.

The Umansky law firm has years of experience handling this type of case. In one of their cases they were contacted by a client who was charged with tampering of evidence and possession of marijuana under 20 grams. The firm finds the evidence against their client weak and went to talk to the prosecutor to have it dismissed. The prosecutor wanted their client to serve 6 months jail time. But the firm was able to prove that the state's evidence is weak and would be unable to prove that indeed their client tampered the evidence. As such the prosecutor dropped the charges against their client. As to their client's possession of marijuana charges the firm was able to resolve it with their client paying only a small amount of fine, no jail time and probation and no felony conviction on his record.

Without a lawyer's assistance any person arrested of tampering will most likely serve jail time and will have this in his record. Why would you let that happen when you can save yourself the trouble by just calling your lawyer to defend the case for you.
