Was the police officer who assaulted you caught and charged with a crime? Are you currently pressing charges against him or her? These are essential steps, but the criminal justice system can close ranks around its own, erecting a "blue shield" to protect dangerous sexual predators. While this behavior is unacceptable, it is an unfortunate fact of the world.
Civil litigation provides a second avenue for legal recourse. In pressing criminal charges, you must rely on the decisions of other police officers and prosecutors. It can be hard to secure justice, but with a civil lawsuit, you take control of the situation. Your lawsuit is your own. You make the important decisions. We work for you. We protect you, and no one else.
