My fiance was arrested saturday and charged with

Resolved Question:

My fiance was arrested saturday and charged with               PC 646.9(A) Stalking and PC 32 Accessory. Her brother is on parole and he apparently violated his parole. The cops came to her house several times over the last two weeks looking for him, and told her, her father, and her brother they were going to arrest them if her brother didn't turn himself in. Well her brother never came to the house, and the cops kept coming back. Eventually, last saturday march 28th, they arrested everyone in the house and charged them as an accessory. I'm not sure whats going on with her father and brother, but she has no record at all, has never been arrested for anything, and had nothing to do with her brothers actions. Can they legally arrest her and charge her with these charges? She is still in jail. Her court arainment is tomorrow. Her bail is $150,000. I am outraged! Is this legal?

It is legal to arrest her and charge her but may very well be a violation of her constitutional/civil rights. I don't understand why they would do this or set the bail so high on her for this charge unless they had proof the family was somehow assisting her brother.

She needs to get a lawyer to assist her in getting the bail lowered and speak to a lawyer who does civil rights law to examine a potential civil suit.
