DESTRUCTION OR FABRICATION OF EVIDENCE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT

It is shocking that it even happens… corrupt government officials and law enforcement may fabricate or destroy evidence to bring about a desired conviction or protect their job. Under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, every American citizen is guaranteed the right against unreasonable searches and seizures. As such, taking away a person’s rights of due process (14th Amendment) and unreasonable seizure (via fabricated evidence) is a federal crime.

We saw it with Walter Scott. As the New York Times reported that a law enforcement officer went back toward the location where the initial scuffle occurred and picked something up off the ground. Moments later, he dropped an object near Mr. Scott’s body. We know it to be true because a bystander recorded it. As a nation, we were and should have been outraged.

Destruction of evidence also occurs. Either way, our criminal defense and civil rights lawyers work diligently not only to clear the victim’s name, but punish rogue officers.

We use 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 of the U.S. Code to sue individual actors in their individual and official capacities and to vindicate your rights before a judge and jury.

We invite you to review our verdicts, our accolades and awards and what clients have to say about us and give us a call for a free consultation where our lawyers will sit down with you personally.
