What constitutes police misconduct?

Police misconduct in Virginia can take many forms, and you should always speak to an attorney about the specifics of your particular case to determine whether or not to move forward with a lawsuit. At Randall Page, P.C., our knowledgeable team has experience litigating civil rights cases involving various forms of misconduct and fraud by law enforcement officers and prosecutors. This includes:

  • Police brutality
  • Unlawful arrests
  • Unlawful searches and seizures
  • Police shootings
  • Wrongful convictions
  • Denial of emergency medical care while in custody

What are your civil rights?

It is important to understand that citizens have rights granted to them under the Constitution of the United States. Specifically, this includes protections under the:

  • Fourth Amendment. This amendment protects you against illegal searches and seizures, as well as police brutality. Using the Fourth Amendment as your protection, we will fight unlawful arrest and wrongful conviction cases.
  • First Amendment. This amendment guarantees you the freedom of speech and the freedom of peaceable assembly. It also protects you from retaliation against government authorities for exercising your rights.

There are also numerous state and municipal laws and regulations in place to prevent police misconduct, but that does not mean this type of behavior will not occur.

Many people assume that law enforcement officials and prosecutors have immunity from civil lawsuits in cases of misconduct. The reality is that they do not have blanket immunity, and they can be held accountable when their actions are unjust, negligent, or intentional. However, victims in these cases need to understand that they need to follow suit as soon as possible. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Virginia is two years from the date the injury occurs. Failing to file a lawsuit within this time frame will result in the victim being unable to recover the compensation they need.
