Every day in the City of New York people go to jail falsely accused of crimes that they did not commit. There is nothing more horrifying than being handcuffed, man-handled, searched and thrown into a jail cell for absolutely no reason. Every day in New York City police stations, courthouses and jails people are let out the back door, their cases DP'd (decline to prosecute) , dismissed, or terminated favorably after a not guilty verdict. The police and others in authority want these folks to simply go away quietly.
When you are the victim of a false arrest in New York, you do not have to walk away quietly. You have the right to human dignity. You have the right to seek money damages against the City and against the police officers who arrested you.
