PHILADELPHIA FALSE ARREST ATTORNEY
PA False Arrest Lawyers
People alleging that they were falsely arrested can claim that their right to be protected against unreasonable seizure was violated by the police. To make an arrest, an officer must have probable cause to detain someone and reasonable suspicion that he or she committed a crime.
