Malicious prosecution claims

If the police pursue a prosecution spitefully and without reasonable or probable cause, then you may be able to claim compensation if the prosecution against you ended in your favour, such as with an acquittal. For advice on a malicious prosecution issue contact our specialist police complaints team on 0175 321 5096.

Malicious prosecution is a particularly serious matter because the police and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) should carry out their functions honestly and with integrity.

The court’s have been willing to consider the damage to reputation or loss of earnings in such cases; however they are very difficult to bring as there is a very high standard of evidence required.
