False Arrest - Illegal Detention
Police Harassment and False Arrest – Illegal Stop & Frisk
For some police officers, the end justifies the means. In their eyes, taking liberties in stopping, questioning and searching a citizen is good police work if it confirms their suspicions. At the Law Offices of Figeroux & Associates, we call it for what it is, a pure and unconscionable violation of constitutional rights.
Figeroux & Associates brings nearly 15 years of experience in civil rights litigation to cases of false arrest and illegal detention. We have brought rogue police officers to justice. If you have issues of egregious misconduct, including strip searches, coerced confessions and even planting of evidence once officers discovered they had no legitimate cause to stop you, give us a call.

More than a “Minor Intrusion”
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens from “unreasonable searches and seizures.” This protection applies to your home, your car and your person. It applies to being pulled over, frisked, handcuffed, or being made to sit in the back of a police car without any reason other than the officer’s “suspicion.” It applies to the confiscation of any personal property or any evidence of a crime that results from an illegal search and seizure.
Police cannot badger you, place you in custody and come up with a reason for your arrest later. They cannot use racial profiling to pull you over. And they certainly can’t conduct a humiliating strip search without a very solid basis. But they have the guns and the badges, and they determine the “facts” that will go in the report. Raising your objections when you are detained may only lead to fabricated charges of resisting arrest.
The best option is to swallow your indignation and contact an attorney who handles these cases.

New York, Civil Rights Attorneys
The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The Department’s own reports on its stop-and-frisk activity confirm what many people in communities of color across the city have long known: The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.
