Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
You can file a complaint with the officer's superiors, with the chief of police, with Internal Affairs and with the State Attorney General. In that way you can trigger an investigation into the officer's unlawful conduct and get them sanctioned, perhaps suspended or even terminated from the force.
You can also contact a civil rights lawyer and sue the police and the country for a false arrest. The statute of limitations for that is a year in California, so you need to find representation and get moving on that now.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
