Do you have a specific question?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

how many civil rights were violated and what can I do about it.


In 1996 I was arrest at my home for many counts of car thief/ hit a run/ and all charge were drop because the police lied and made fales reports . incarceration from 11/5/ 96 to 11/13/96 and transfer to other county and release on bail 11/15/96 and all charges were drop after 6mos of trial.

I agree it sounds like civil rights violations, but California has a 2 year statute of limitations to sue for civil rights violations, so if the case ended over 2 years ago my opinion is that it is too late to pursue a claim for this in Court.

If you were wrongly imprisoned the only other remedy I can think of would be a "private bill" for compensation that would have to be passed by the State Legislature.
