In order to make an arrest, law enforcement must have probable cause or an arrest warrant. It is a false arrest if the police detain you without either. False arrests are illegal and cause significant stress, embarrassment, and potentially the loss of freedom.
If a person is innocent of a crime based on factual evidence or if the proper procedures are not followed and is still convicted of a crime, that conviction is considered to be a wrongful or false conviction. There are a number of reasons why wrongful convictions occur, including due process violations, false confessions, and prosecutorial misconduct.
Police Brutality and Excessive Force
It is against the law for law enforcement to use excessive force. Excessive force can include punching, kicking, choking, verbal abuse, and use of weapons. Even if you are charged with and ultimately convicted of a crime, excessive force is still illegal.
