Malicious prosecution is defined as prosecution for a criminal charge without probable cause or for baseless reasons, and in many cases for purposes of harassment. Facing this unfounded prosecution for a crime you didn’t commit is frightening, angering and humiliating. But when you are up against the word of law enforcement officials and state’s prosecutors, obtaining justice can seem like a hopeless situation. While a skilled defense attorney can help ensure that the charges against you are dropped, if you wish to seek financial recovery for your damages, you need a skilled civil rights lawyer.
Obtaining Justice And Compensation When You Have Been Victimized By The Police
At Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C., we do not provide criminal defense for malicious prosecution, but can refer you to experienced attorneys who do. How our lawyers can help is by bringing a tort action in civil court to help you obtain compensation for any damages you experienced as a result of the malicious prosecution.
There may be countless reasons that police maliciously prosecute an individual. Maybe personal stereotypes or biases are involved. Or perhaps an individual was previously charged with a crime and officers/prosecutors try to side-step the law when bringing a new charge. Regardless of your specific circumstances or your past criminal history, it’s important to remember that you have legal rights. And our lawyers are here to help you exercise them.
