You Don’t Need to Fight These Charges Alone
In an ideal world, we would completely trust law enforcement to protect and serve the citizens. We would expect the police to arrest only the guilty, or at least only arrest people where there is substantial evidence sufficient to indicate a strong suspicion of guilt. Unfortunately, we do not live in that ideal world, and police misconduct is an ongoing problem in many cities across the country. While most police officers strive to treat citizens appropriately and follow all appropriate procedures, still far too many are willing to cross the line and violate the rights of suspects. California is no different.
If you are falsely arrested or improperly imprisoned for a crime that you did not commit, it is vital to have a seasoned and passionate criminal defense attorney in your corner. If you have been the victim of false arrest or other police misconduct, call Law Offices of John D. Lueck, APC immediately for a free case evaluation with our criminal defense team, and find out how you can protect your rights.
It’s Not Just A Night in Jail
The turmoil of being dragged from your regular life and thrust inappropriately into a jail cell is alone enough to cause emotional distress for most people. A false arrest, unfortunately, can result in much more than an unpleasant night in jail.
Even just an arrest can affect the opinions of your family, your friends, and your employer, harming your personal and professional reputation. Your jail stay may span more than one night depending on when you can get a court date and, without a good defense team in your corner, you may end up detained without bail while awaiting trial or dismissal of the charges. Time spent in jail is time away from your work, your family, your home, and your friends, creating a laundry list of potential financial and personal issues. If the charge is embezzlement or something else work-related, your reputation may not recover, even if the charges are dropped. A false conviction, moreover, can completely derail your life.
Additionally, police officers and other inmates may pose a real danger to you during your time imprisoned. If you are physically assaulted or sexually harassed while incarcerated, it is vital to call upon a zealous criminal defense attorney to vindicate you and your rights.
