Claims Against an Arresting Officers for False Arrest


shutterstock_1459750One of the areas of law that we practice is in the areas of civil rights. This could include police misconduct or abuse. Police officers are essentially agents of the state, they are always employed by the municipality and thus the fourth amendment of the constitution is applicable in the terms of the right to be free from unlawful arrest also called false arrest and malicious prosecution which is basically a prosecution done from malice and without a probable cause. You also have the right to be free from excessive force, for example during an arrest to not have unnecessary force used against you in order to restrain you during that process.
