Police Misconduct Attorney - Injury and Wrongful Death in California

Police misconduct can have life-altering consequences for the victims and their families. These cases are notoriously challenging to pursue due to the web of government immunity and complex legal systems protecting the perpetrators. But despite these obstacles, CA-based police misconduct lawyer Adrianos Facchetti continues to demonstrate his ability to navigate the system and fight for the rights of his clients.

Adriano understands that civilians who suffer at the hands of law enforcement deserve justice and financial compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial toll such incidents take. Working with him, you can be sure you’re taking a crucial step towards reclaiming your life and holding those responsible accountable.

The Complexities of Police Misconduct Cases

Holding law enforcement officers accountable for misconduct presents many challenges.

Government immunity, also known as qualified immunity, is a legal doctrine that shields government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability for their actions. That protection often sets a high bar for proving that an officer’s actions were unlawful or violated an individual’s rights. 

In addition to government immunity, there are several other ways the legal system can protect police officers from misconduct claims. That includes:

• Police departments
• Police unions
• Compromised prosecutors

Types of Misconduct By Law Enforcement Officers

Police misconduct encompasses a range of actions that violate civil rights and undermine law enforcement’s integrity. They include:

1. False Arrest

This suffices when an officer detains or arrests an individual without probable cause or a valid warrant. The victims of wrongful arrests suffer humiliation, loss of employment opportunities, incarceration, or financial burdens.

2. Excessive Force

Excessive force occurs when a police officer uses force disproportionate to the circumstances. Such police brutality can result in serious injuries that require immediate medical attention or even unfair death. 

3. Malicious Prosecution

This occurs when a law enforcement officer intentionally initiates false criminal charges against an innocent individual. The consequences include false imprisonment, financial loss, reputation damage, and emotional distress

4. Unlawful Search and Seizures

The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects you against unreasonable searches and seizures by government officers. Victims of unlawful searches and seizures may experience an invasion of privacy, loss of property, and emotional distress.

5. Racial Profiling

This type of misconduct occurs when police officers target individuals for suspicion of criminal activity based on their race, ethnicity, or national origin rather than on specific evidence or reasonable doubt. 

Competent civil rights attorneys in California can help victims pursue legal action against this civil rights violation and get compensated for the emotional and psychological trauma.

6. Sexual Misconduct

Sexual misconduct by law enforcement officers can include anything from rape, attempted rape, coercive conversations, and sexual comments (or gestures) to sexual assault in a traffic stop. Reported effects are emotional and psychological trauma, physical injuries, and long-lasting effects on mental health.

Additional types of police misconduct:

• Lying under oath
• Coerced confession
• Planted evidence
• Witness tampering
