Civil Rights, Federally and State
We are granted certain enumerated rights in both the US Constitution and the state constitution. We do not lose those rights based on a criminal status. Everyone has a right to treated fairly.
Our rights under the US Constitution comes under the 14th Amendment. No person should be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. It’s a federal crime when a person who is acting under “under color of any law” (that is, under governmental authority or the pretense of authority) violates another person’s civil rights “willfully” (18 U.S.C. § 242). When police goes beyond the scope of their duty, people can sue the police for violating their civil rights under the Civil Rights Act of 1871 (42 U.S.C. § 1983).
In addition to federal claims, a plaintiff can also bring several claims under state law, such as: false imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution, abuse of process; excessive force, battery, assault and wrongful death.
