My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky
I was unaware of a warrant for my arrest for shoplifting back in November of 12'. Once I found out about it, I called a lawyer, went to court several times costing me alot of money. Someone got caught shoplifting and gave my SSN# to the loss prevention and or police officer. Hence why it was pinned on me. Well after going to court several times for this it was dismissed a couple of weeks ago. Because obviously it wasnt me that done it. Anyhow, could i sue the department store/ police department, etc etc to try to regain the money i was out fighting to prove my innocence? I spent well over $3000, missed several days of work, and was stressed out the entire time,because I have NEVER had to go to court for anything. Any advice would be great.
PS: The loss prevention officer/police officer failed to come to court everytime, and I believed gave my lawyer a cursing for calling them.
