Mistakes are not acceptable when they result in an innocent person having to spend days or weeks in jail. Police need to be held accountable for their actions. Security guards can be guilty of this as well. When people become victims of false arrest and false imprisonment, they have the right to seek compensation and justice for the time away from their jobs, friends and families.

Not Just a Night in Jail

While some false arrest cases result in lengthy prison stays, others are resolved after the victim spends only a small amount of time in jail. However, even one night in jail can cause significant harm. The harm is not simply the emotional damage incurred during the process, but the damage to a person's reputation. It can impact a person's career, leading to job loss and difficulty getting another job, particularly if the accusation was of embezzlement or a work-related offense.


Bad Treatment in Jail

False arrest and imprisonment can be made worse by the treatment the victim receives during the process. If the victim suffers sexual harassment or another form of harassment during the process, the damage is even more serious. The Law Offices of Andrew C. Laufer, PLLC will hold the police accountable.
