False Arrests in New York
Defending Your Rights against Wrongful Arrest & Imprisonment
Being falsely arrested for a crime you did not commit can greatly impact your future, your reputation, and your freedom. The psychological sand sometimes physical trauma can be devastating and protecting your rights in these cases is important to not only help you, but to hold responsible officers accountable so similar incidents do not continue to happen.
What is a False Arrest?
Contrary to widely held belief, private citizens can also commit false arrest offenses. Any time you or a loved one is restricted against your will, the perpetrator may be held liable for false imprisonment.
It is important to consider the following in any false arrest case:
- Was there intent?
- Was there consent?
- Was the arrest lawful?
- Were there any civil rights violations?
- Was the arrest supported by evidence?
- Was there police misconduct and did they act within their duties?
In addition, if you restrict another against their will, including kidnapping accusations or other unlawful detentions, our New York criminal defense lawyers can aggressively defend you.
