Abuse by Police | Utah Criminal Defense Attorney
Utah Police Can Easily Abuse Their Power
Utah police officers do many good things. They protect individuals and help ensure society is orderly and stable. Though most people are not happy police are around when they get pulled over for a traffic crime, most people are probably happy that police officers are in Salt Lake, Ogden, Provo, and other Utah cities.
Even though most police officers protect people and don’t abuse their power, there are always those few exceptions that give other police officers a bad name. Police officers have the trust of most people so few would actually disbelieve what an officer would say about an incident. A judge, a jury, and the public would probably believe an officer before giving any credit to a criminal defendant. A police officer could lie about what happened if the only two witnesses are a criminal defendant and the police officer. This is why a criminal defendant or anyone talking with police should have a Utah criminal defense lawyer present to protect his or her rights from police abuse.
Utah Man Claims Police Abuse
A Sandy man is now wishing he would have had a Utah criminal defense attorney present when he interacted with Sandy Police two years ago. The man is suing Sandy City and some of its police officers because he claims that they beat him up when he was trying to help some victims of a car accident in front of his house. While helping the victims of the accident, Sandy police arrived and told him to leave. As he was walking away he claims a few officers pushed him up against a truck, punched him, and tackled him to the ground. The man now has a Utah personal injury lawyer to help him sue the officers.
Though Sandy City has not respond to the law suit yet, they will most likely deny everything. It is hoped that Sandy Police did not act this way and this man’s claims and his use of a Utah personal injury lawyer are not grounded in the truth. If Sandy Police did hurt the man, how is anyone to feel safe from police? No wants to be required to hire a Utah criminal defense attorney anytime they interact with police but if they don’t, they may be abused by the police.
