Protect Your Fourth Amendment Rights in Oklahoma
Police officers and other law enforcement officials have a responsibility to treat suspects and individuals convicted of crimes in a reasonable manner. The wrongful incarceration of citizens is a violation of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, whether it is locking up a person for a crime he or she did not commit, or it is treating that suspect poorly while in confinement.

False Arrest and Imprisonment
Any time a person is deprived of liberty, it is significant. Sometimes, however, innocent people do not have their innocence proven until they have been incarcerated for years. In other cases, the false imprisonment is for only a short period, but still has the ability to cause harm for the victim.
Proving false arrest or imprisonment by law enforcement officials, store owners or other individuals is not easy and requires an attorney who understands the laws in Oklahoma. It may be possible for the victims of wrongful incarceration and illegal arrest to pursue compensation for physical injuries, mental suffering, loss of earnings and attorneys’ fees.
Punitive damages may also be sought after in cases involving malice or the excessive use of force.
