From what you described in your criminal case you are charged with a crime in Nebraska on two felony charges. As a rule, the felony charges have certain bond conditions attached to your subsequent release, such as the risk of flight and danger to the community. Upon this determination the court judge sets a bond amount during a bond hearing.
You indicated that the bond reduction request was denied. In such cases depending on certain vital factors that is not unusual.
In my personal professional opinion I do not believe there are any valid allegations of false imprisonment in your case that could be asserted.

Not likely to be able to win on a false imprisonment suit. I would have your public defender argue bond and have any family or friends show at your next hearing to point to your ties to the community. You may just want to pay to hire an attorney to fight for you.
