Actions Against Police
Malicious ProsecutionMeet the team
Have you been wrongfully prosecuted? This is known as malicious prosecution. You will need to have won or succeeded in the court case brought against you, i.e. by:
- Having the charges dropped against you before court
- Accepting a bind-over (promising good behaviour, keeping the peace or refraining from certain activities for the sake of the charges being dropped)
- Being acquitted in court (found innocent)
Claims usually come down to proving that the police have fabricated the evidence brought against you.
