You have rights under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. The law protects citizens against unreasonable searches and seizures. You cannot be arrested without a warrant or probable cause.
A police officer must be reasonably sure that a crime has been committed based on the facts and circumstances of the case. Both police and prosecutors are protected by prosecutorial immunity, which gives both groups a certain amount of freedom to catch real criminals and pursue justice.

A lot can go wrong
Mr. Mark understand that the police have a tough, demanding job. Sometimes law enforcement are too quick on the draw, resulting in a wrongful arrest. Peaceful citizens who show up at a demonstration may be arrested if they fail to obey a police order quickly enough. Or they may be arrested if they were ordered to stay 20 feet back, and were only 18 feet away from the line.
If one of your buddies gets involved in a crime, you may be considered guilty by association, and wrongfully arrested. Or you may fit the racial profile.
Damage to you and your family
A wrongful arrest due to police misconduct can inflict real losses, including:
- A criminal record requiring later expungement
- Damage to your reputation
- Absence from the job or school
- Costs, including court and attorney fees
In order to prove that you were wrongfully arrested, Mark Law Firm, must prove that the police officer lacked probable cause, and then pursue damages.
