Arrests: Your Rights and the Law

The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution protects us from "unreasonable" arrests, but what that means exactly  depends on understanding and applying  many rules developed by Congress and state legislators, as interpreted by federal and state courts.

Learn about the procedures that police must follow in order to make a legal arrest, and what happens to your case if the arrest is not legal.
