Advice Column with Belinda Parker Brown
Q: Mrs. Brown as a community activist, how would you explain the 99% conviction rate in St. Tammy Parish?
In the criminal context, the state (which includes both the judicial and executive branches of governing officers) are almost always granted immunity in the course of performing their ministerial duties. This immunity comes under the rules governing § 1983 lawsuits in federal courts for violating a person’s civil rights. The exception to this rule is when a person is able to clearly establish a direct malicious attack against them that resulted in a violation of their civil rights in some manner. Establishing this means that that person must have some type of evidence that proves their claim. A mere contention is not proof.
In situations such as yours, a person cannot claim a civil rights violation for false imprisonment under § 1983 merely because they were arrested for an old warrant. Things happen in the course of administering justice. The arresting officers may not have received the suspension of the warrant in time. The clerk may have made a mistake, etc. These would be some basic examples of how things could and do happen regularly. That’s not to say that establishes some type of maliciousness. Furthermore, the judge apologized.
