Jail misconduct typically refers to victims of physical abuse by police or staff members at correctional facilities. However, police/jail misconduct can take many different forms, including, but not limited to:
- Failure to provide medical care
- Failure to provide mental health care
- Sexual abuse
- Failure to properly recognize and prevent suicide
- Physical abuse
- Wrongful arrest
- Wrongful prosecution
Your guaranteed Constitutional rights do not end after you have been arrested. Federal and State laws protect the rights of individuals incarcerated in state and federal prisons. However, prosecuting a civil action of this nature is often very complex.
