Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your question.
I am sorry to hear this. It sounds like the person has several civil rights claims.
You can get a free consultation from some of the local civil rights attorneys listed here.
Please follow up on this with a local attorney.
Successful civil rights plaintiffs are routinely awarded attorney fees in addition to damages and injunctions, so you should be able to find an attorney who will not ask for a large retainer.
I hope this information is helpful.
