A Case Study of One of Many Wrongful Arrests

At James Law Group, we are relentless in our pursuit of justice, especially in cases of wrongful arrest and incarceration. In a recent case, we represented a young man who faced unwarranted suspicion and false accusations following a local restaurant burglary.

The Incident

Following a burglary at a local restaurant, law enforcement honed in on a young man who had previously worked at the establishment. Despite scant evidence, the young man was arrested based on unsubstantiated suspicion.

Unmasking Deception: False Claims Lead to Injustice

Compounding the injustice, the investigating officer fabricated claims, stating that the restaurant owner had identified our client as one of the burglars. This deceitful act not only tainted the investigation but also led to the wrongful incarceration of an innocent individual.

After a burglary at a local restaurant, police focused on a young man who had been terminated a few months before. Despite what can only be described as a general suspicion of the young man, police arrested the young man. Because there was a lack of evidence against the young man, the investigating officer falsely claimed that the restaurant owner had identified the young man as one of the burglars. After spending four months incarcerated awaiting trial, the charges were finally dismissed. After obtaining the dismissal, James Law Group was then able to obtain a pre-suit settlement of $225,000 against the police officer who arrested him.
