I am sorry that you are experiencing this matter.
So please tell me what happened once you were arrested - were you released on bond or you own recognizance?
I was released on a 191.00 bond 3 hours after I was arrested.
I see. Well, they have to set a bond when there is a record of a failure to appear
You can sue the police officer, but you will need to prove that the police officer arrested you knowing full well that your ticket was for another county and that there was an intent to cause you harm by arresting you.
Police officers only do a job. There is a warrant and they arrest based on that information. But if you can show that this officer knew for a fact that the warrant was not valid or only arrested you to harm you, then you might find a local attorney to take your case
Im not wanting to sue the officer who arrested me because it wasn't his fault. I want to sue the officer who gave the wrong county my citation, which resulted in me going to jail.
Yes, if you can prove that the error was intentional. Again, it's the same premise. You have to be able to prove that it was not just an error but an Intentional attempt to harm you.
