False imprisonment.

Asked over 1 year ago - Titusville, FL

A warrant was issued and on Jan 31st, 2013 Jenny Louise EDWARDS was arrested and held without bail on a VOP violation.
37 days later she was released because the warrant that was issued was false. The judge did not her to serve probation.
1000s dollars later she got released due to demanding someone to check the records.
Three attorneys were hired and none of them would even try to look at the court's record.
Because of the warrant everything is upside down and according to neighbor the police found out through them.
So what options are there?
