My son has been arrested twice on hear say from someone in the streets. The police drops the charge before 30 days, then they come back and arrest him again on hear say. The police told me that they don't care that they're gonna put him in jail for anything. Because his name came up in a homicide and they can't solve it so they're mad and they're letting the family of the deceased harass us draw weapons on us at the court house and the police won't take our reports when we call them. I currently have a case pending against one of the family members who's some kin to the deceased, he shot at us in broad daylight so the detective is upset with us about that also. The detective basically is so wrapped up in this one case and he only listens to them, and it's not fair
Your son, if an adult, needs to consult an attorney handling false arrest and malicious prosecution cases, and if a juvenile, you and he must consult such an attorney. An arrest must be based on probable cause, meaning there must be a reasonable belief that it is likely that the arrestee committed or is committing a crime. Whether probable cause may be based on hearsay statements depends on several factors. Regarding the issue of individuals attacking and/or stalking anyone, the victims should seek a restraining order. Talk to an attorney about that as well, but you may also go to the Clerk of Court which has form petitions for restraining orders, also called temporary injunctions.
