Can I win in a false imprisonment case?

Asked over 2 years ago - Wichita, KS

1. I was the victim of an assault and falsely arrested, denied testimony on 30-ocassions and was told "I have the claimant's statement and that is all I need". I am being tried for a misdemeanor Domestic Battery, when I am the victim of the assault and received a brain injury.

2. The case has not been tried yet.

3. My economic loss will be about $2M, including my cost for education, inability to be employed, prospective future wages.

4. District Attorney is trying to force me into a plea by accusing me of not registering my vehicle, and placing a warrant out for my arrest at a hearing set 30-days before the my jury trial on the Misdemeanor Domestic Battery, of which I am not guilty of either.
