New York City Police Brutality Lawyers
Police officers make mistakes. Sometimes they think they can do things and use types of force that the law does not permit them. Similar to false arrest or imprisonment, are illegal searches and seizures, and cruel and unusual punishments. These are violations of your civil rights that should not be tolerated. You may have been falsely arrested if you were simply handcuffed or placed in a squad car at the scene of a suspected crime.
Being handcuffed means you have been placed under arrest. Being placed in the back of a squad car means you have been detained or imprisoned. You have done nothing wrong, or if you have been detained under suspicion of criminal activity under questionable reasoning, you may have a case for false arrest or false imprisonment.
