WHAT IS WRONGFUL or FALSE ARREST?
False arrest occurs if you were arrested when there was no probable cause for you to have been arrested in the first place. Also, if the charges against you were dropped, you may have a claim for false arrest. According to The Innocence Project, wrongful convictions are increasing.
You may have a case against a business or retailer that falsely or unreasonably accused you of committing a crime, when in fact, you committed no crime at all. You may have a case against a law enforcement agency for failing to properly investigate the claim against you.
At the Thomas Creech Law Offices, we hear the stories about false arrest. A major retail store informed police officers that a person was shoplifting in the store. The police acting on the word of the store employees arrests the shopper. Ultimately, after everything comes out, the charges are dropped. But the damage to your reputation has been done. Now what?
