Taking a person into custody is one of law enforcement’s most basic functions after a crime has been committed. However, with every arrest, there are legal thresholds that must be met by the arresting officers. Regardless of this, numerous citizens are subjected to false arrests every year due to mistakes or misconduct from law enforcement that they were supposed to trust. An arrest may not only be unjustified but also embarrassing and could have a devasting impact on your professional life.

If you believe that you have been the subject of a false arrest, then it is wise to seek legal counsel by Scott Hayes. We believe that these types of civil rights violations are unacceptable and should be answered with swift and decisive legal action. The Fourth Amendment protects all citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures and when these rights have been violated by police officers, those who are responsible should be held accountable for their actions.
