Obstruction of justice

Obstruction of justice, in a common law state, refers to the crime of offering interference of any sort to the work of police, investigators[?], regulatory agencies, prosecutors[?], or other (usually government) officials. Often, no actual investigation or substantiated suspicion of a specific incident need exist to support a charge of obstruction of justice.
