False Imprisonment & False Arrest

As experienced South Carolina criminal defense lawyers, we know very well that sometimes people are arrested and charged with crimes that they didn’t commit. Additionally, we recognize that an overzealous security guard may harass and wrongfully detain an individual until the police arrive. However, in either of these circumstances an individual may be entitled to recover damages.

In most cases, when an individual is wrongfully detained or arrested, they have several potential civil claims against the store or police department including: (1) false arrest and imprisonment; (2) malicious prosecution; (3) civil assault and battery; and (4) defamation.
