A wrongful arrest is defined as an individual being detained and/or wrongfully convicted by police without proper legal authority. Most innocent people, victims of wrongful imprisonment or false arrest, file against the officer, police department and municipality for damages that include, but are not limited to mental distress, embarrassment and racial discrimination. The majority of evidence in these cases are discovered after the fact of the arrest, when the individual enters court.
The most common occurrence of wrongful arrest is when a retail store owner or employee holds a customer against their will without probable cause or evidence of a crime, such as shoplifting. Many times the police will arrest an individual suspected of this crime without proper evidence and solely based on the testimony of the employee or owner. If you or a family member has been a victim of false arrest, you may be entitled to compensation.
