I was named in a civil suit in December and the plaintiff's attorney pressured the local police department to arrest me so that he could have leverage in the civil lawsuit. The police department arrested me in January and the civil suit has now been resolved with no responsibility or liability on my part. The plaintiff signed a no-prosecution affidavit for the DA. Do I have a case in suing the police department?

I am the person that asked you about this person and the family that are being harassed by police officers. You mentioned that if he has evidence that if these officers or the unit are doing to this to his family. He does not have any tangible evidence. However, if their superior would look into this, they would be saying all the logs and the name of the under covers that were involved in this harassment. The real question is the following:Would the superior would pay attention to this complaint and if so how long about it would take them to proceed.Could this unit wipe out all the evidence and the logs. Would that be legal?

I ran for Pennsylvania State Constable and got Elected in November 2015. A few weeks later I received my Election Certificate and was informed by my Union that I am now a Constable. On December 1st I signed up online for my Constable Basic Training Classes and given my Badge Number. Around the same time I purchased my Constable Car with Cage, Pennsylvania State Constable Police Plaque for the front bumper and rear window of the car, and my Constable Jacket that had 4 patches on it that said Constable and One Patch that said Police. Several days letter I receive a letter in the mail addressed to me Constable XYZ from the state. So I'm assuming that yes I am a Constable. A few days later I go to serve a lawsuit for an Attorney in a near by Muni. Which I have been doing for years as a Process Server and before that as a Constable.

Need to know how to proceed. My 20yo son lives across town.

Need to know how to proceed.My 20yo son lives across town. He had 5 friends at his residence where he lives by himself. One visitor locked his keys in his car and around midnight, on a Saturday night, my son and two of the other young men were getting tools out of my sons car to get the keys out of the locked car and were apparently too noisy for their neighbor. The man of the house came out and asked them to quiet down and the apologized and everyone went inside. My son states that approximately 30 minutes later the police knocked on his door. He opened it and stepped outside, closing the front door behind him. He states the officer immediately directed him to open his door and let him in. My son refused and asked him to get a warrant if he felt he needed to go inside and asked what he could do for him. The officer became belligerent (according to my son) and my son felt scared for h

Can someone who was convicted of a felony and sentenced to

Hello,Can someone who was convicted of a felony and sentenced to incarceration time still subpeona dna tests that were taken at the time the original charges were filed (before trial)? A trial was conducted and the tests were not subpoenaed before trial by defense council and would've been helpful to defense if they had. Is there a statute of time during post conviction that allows the subpoenaing of tests to show exculpatory evidence or possibly prove misconduct in trial? The conviction is currently in appeals.

I am a 100 percent disabled female in a wheelchair. I

Customer: I am a 100 percent disabled female in a wheelchair. I recently went to a scheduled appt. with a pain management dr. and was Baker Acted by him for filling out a section on his forms with the statement "request prescription for a bullet". I was beaten, forcibly manhandled by two law enforcement officers and hauled out in double handcuffs behind my back (I have a broken rotator cuff and this was just rebroken thanks to this crap) and then taken to a mental health hospital under the Baker Act provisions. The MD on staff saw me the next day and asked me what in the world I was doing in the hospital. I explained what had happened and he just shook his head and left. I want to know what recourse I have at this time given that I am terrified to even open my door let alone leave my house. It should be stated that I have concealed weapons permit and was carrying my pistol as I always do in my belly pack. The officers took my gun, speed loaders, 15 bullets, my baton and a container of mace attached to my key chain. I do not know what to do and need assistance asap. PLEASE HELP ME! JA: Thanks.
