Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HI, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience and I'd like to assist you for informational purposes. Suing towns and cities for misuse of power is difficult. You will need an attorney who practices in governmental immunity and potential US code section 1983. See the following link for the verbiage of the legal section: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/42/1983
I hope this is helpful.
Since being charged with this felony and accepting a plea agreement that allowed an alternate misdemeanor upon completion of the agreement, I have reported on applications that I have not been convicted of a felony since it had been marked as a misdemeanor. Can I be held liable for such actions since I was ignorant of the situation?
No, you pled to the misdemeanor, not the felony, so the conviction is for the misdemeanor.
Please let me know if I have answered your question.
