Yes, aug 21

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

I received a ticket for theft of property, and I currently have a lawyer who is in the process of viewing the motorcycle and proving it is my girlfriends. Moreover, the officer wrote in his report a completely different vin number then the motorcycle I was driving. Again, on my ticket he put the correct vin, but put in the report a different vin. It clearly was intentional or a horrible mistake. If the officer did it by accident the incorrect vin would have been on the ticket as well, instead it's the correct one that doesn't come up stolen and that I have the title for.

You would not be able to establish that you were unlawfully arrested until the charges are dismissed First. Once the charges are dismissed, then you can contact an attorney that specializes in these types of cases who can make a determination as to whether they believe that the arrest was false and that you deserve compensation.
