California Interruption of an Electronic Communication Device Charges and Penalties

What is Interruption of an Electronic Communication Device?

A person who unlawfully and maliciously removes, injures, destroys, damages, or obstructs the use of any wireless communication device with the intent to prevent the use of the device to summon assistance or notify law enforcement or any public safety agency is guilty of interrupting an electronic communication device.

These types of acts of destruction, obstruction, or delaying could include but are not limited to, pulling a phone line out of a house, cutting a phone line, destroying a communication device, or taking, damaging, or disabling a phone out of someone’s hands who is trying to call for help or has voiced the desire to call for help or emergency aid.

Help can include, medical, law enforcement, and fire department. Often times this charge can be coupled with other charges, including domestic violence.

As there can be so many aspects to the crime, it is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel.

It is important to note that this crime can be charged with other crimes such as domestic violence, murder, or even vehicular manslaughter.

What is the Penalty?

Interrupting an electronic communication device in California is a misdemeanor that is punishable by imprisonment, a fine, or both.

As the punishment can range so widely, it is important to have legal counsel who will advocate for the lowest possible sentence for you.

Even as a Defendant, you still have Rights! Make sure yours were not violated!

Even as an individual facing criminal charges, you have rights, and it is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged.  Without extensive knowledge of your rights when it comes to police searches, Miranda rights, and your rights when it comes to arrest, it is extremely difficult to get a dismissal or reduction.  Do not try to fight these charges on your own—Weber Law is ready to help you today.
