Were You Wrongfully Charged For A Minor Or Serious Crime?
Police must have probable cause before arresting a person for suspicion of committing a crime. State and federal laws protect people by ensuring strict procedures are followed before, during and after an arrest for suspicion of criminal activity. However, police often go outside of the bounds of procedural due process. Call the law office of Robert C. Allen, P.A., if you are contending with police misconduct involving:
- False accusations
- False arrest
- False evidence or contraband
- Excessive force
- Police assault during an arrest
- Stopping you with no probable cause
- Racial profiling
- Entering your private residence without a valid warrant
Allegations of criminal conduct can be hard to shake off even in a country where one is supposed to be “innocent until proven guilty.” Convictions can carry significant consequences beyond imprisonment and high fines. Loss of a job, broken family relationships and destroyed social reputations can also become lifetime penalties for many after a false arrest. But fighting charges based on police misconduct are difficult to battle on your own, despite state and federal constitutional protections.
