Police Misconduct and Excessive Force in Albuquerque

In some cases, arresting officers will use excessive force during arrest. Under the United States Constitution, you are protected from police brutality and misconduct. If you feel that your rights were infringed upon and that you are facing injuries from excessive force, you may be able to receive compensation. Regardless of the crime that you are accused of committing, you have rights and if your rights were violated, you need to work with an Albuquerque criminal defense attorney from The Romero Law Firm, P.A. immediately.

Under Title 42 of the United States Code, the portion known as Section 1983, civil rights of individuals are protected from misconduct by law enforcement officials. It is unlawful for any arresting officer or enforcer of the law to act in a manner that deprives or restricts the rights of any person. Police misconduct can take many forms, including but not limited to:

  • Police brutality
  • Malicious prosecution
  • False arrest/false imprisonment
  • Use of excessive force
  • Police beatings
  • Taser abuse
  • Police shootings

In most police stops today's world, where nearly everyone has a cell phone capable of recording video and where surveillance cameras cover a large area of Albuquerque, police arrests are almost always videotaped. When we represent a client who claims to have been a victim of police misconduct, we are often able to use video evidence and police documents to build the case and hold the officer accountable.
