My question involves civil rights in the State of: Georgia
Four sheriff squad cars came to home one evening and told me I was under arrest for "Failure to Appear" for a speeding citation. I was in bed asleep at the time. The deputy showed me a piece of paper with my pic on it and said it was a bench warrant. I never got to read it. On the way to the jail I was of course in handcuffs, with no seatbelt on. I noticed the deputy's speed was ten mph over the posted speed limit and asked him to obey the law and slow down. He ignored my request and continued speeding. Upon arrival at jail I was placed in "the hole", a cell with no toilet, water, or bench to sit on. Nor was I read my miranda rights affording me right to counsel. At one point hours later a Lt. came in and asked if I was ready to cooperate, I said no, what was the charge. He threatened me with possibly remaining in the cell for two weeks because the judge was going to be out of town and I had better cooperate. I declined.
After over 4 hours in the hole I decided to cooperate just to get out of jail, and I was made to pay 336.00 to get out. I was never properly served by a sheriff, or a certified process server, nor notified by certified mail of alledged court date. I understand under title 18, U.S.C. (FBI.gov website) subsection 240, 241 that this was a deprivation of rights, my liberty, under color of law. Do I have recourse here against the county and the clerk of courts?
