Wrongful imprisonment and false arrest are absolutely illegal, and if you were falsely arrested or detained for an extended period and then released with no charge, you might be able to sue for violation of your civil rights. Please provide more details. If you were wrongfully imprisoned by police, there is a 90 day deadline from the time of the imprisonment to file a notice of claim against the city or state. However, if you were incarcerated after a trial and feel you were wrongfully convicted, that is a criminal matter that should be taken up with a criminal defense attorney.

Civil Rights
Every person has certain civil rights, granted to the by the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal, state and local laws. Civil rights laws deal with a variety of topics, including human rights, women's rights, disabled rights and gay rights. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which bans employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, is one of the best-known civil rights laws in recent history. If your civil rights have been violated, a civil rights attorney can help you take legal action.
