There was a false accusation against a family member. No investigation yet a charge. The Detective coached a manufactured statement telling accuser to state more happened bringing a 3rd degree closed investigation to a 1st degree charge. When talked with the former undersheriff about his Detective, he mocked me. If there had been an investigation, they would have discovered that the accuser had pointed the finger at their father 1st b4 accusing the family member. The father has raped 3 people that I know of including me. He was arrested in 1981Community College still has the arrest on file. He was wanted for questioning in a 1986 murder. The Defense Attrny worked on behalf of the of the Prosecution making the case irrevocably worse. Judge threatened all supporters, Someone please help!
It doesn't sound like you have any standing to sue the Sheriff for anything. You're family member might but you have not given nearly enough information. You need to get into an attorney's office in person and explain the matter to see if anyone has any claims.
The family member needs to meet with a plaintiff's tort attorney - that is the long and short.
This isn't a criminal defense issue, as you are asking about a civil lawsuit.
Best of Luck.
An Attorney-Client relationship has not been established. Becket J. Jones is not your attorney. In order to protect your interests, you should engage with and retain a competent criminal defense attorney who practices often in the court you are scheduled to be in front of if you have been (or believe you will be) charged with a crime in the State of Michigan.
If you feel like there has been some police corruption, you can file a police report alleging the corruption and they will do an in-house investigation. You can also contact your local bureau of the FBI and file a report with them, alleging the same.
If you'd like to file a Civil Suit against the police department you can contact a Tort attorney specializing in Civil Rights cases.
