Madison Civil Rights Attorneys: Fighting Police Brutality And Misconduct In Wisconsin
Becoming the victim of police brutality or the target of a wrongful arrest can be terrifying. If you are the victim of police misconduct and need a civil rights lawyer, our attorneys at Kasieta Legal Group, LLC, have been serving the community of Madison and protecting the rights of clients throughout Wisconsin for over 25 years.
Constitutional Protections Against Police Misconduct
The state and federal constitutions protect civilians from the abuse of police power. An abuse of power by law enforcement is a civil rights violation. Civil rights violations by law enforcement can include:
- The use of excessive or unnecessary force, including unjustified police shooting
- Discriminatory behaviors like racial profiling
- Wrongful or illegal arrest without probable cause
- Malicious prosecution
- Illegal searches, such as unnecessary or unwarranted strip searches or cavity searches
- Sexual assault or harassment by a police officer
Our commitment to protecting the rights of Madison community members extends beyond employment law and those whose civil rights are violated in a workplace setting, to those who are abused at the hands of law enforcement. If you have been the victim of police brutality, we can help defend your civil rights.
Racial Disparities In Wisconsin Jails And Prisons
Inmates who have been convicted of crimes give up some of their constitutional rights, like the right to their personal freedom, the right to privacy and the right to personal property if that property is considered contraband. However, prisoners still have basic human and civil rights, including:
- The right to be free from assault and abuse by prison employees
- The right to be protected from assault and abuse by other prisoners
- The right to be free from sexual abuse
- The right to receive medical treatment
Deplorable conditions at Wisconsin prisons or jails can also be considered a violation of human and civil rights. Just because you are incarcerated or have been convicted of a crime does not mean that you give up all of your civil rights. If you are in prison or jail and believe that your civil rights have been violated, our civil rights attorneys can help you.
