A year ago I was wrongfully arrested and charged with felony burglary, reduced to misdemeanor burglary. I was released from jail on $1,000. bail. The evidence was a grainy video surveillance tape that was viewed by the person who reported me to the sheriff. I am not the person on the video. I wanted to go to trial but on advice from the public defender I finally took a plea, did 6 hrs community service and there is no record. I want to sue the business in small claims court for damages.
