Can a person sue for defamation of character if the result of an arrest that was wrongly made kept them unemployed for a long time from wrongful imprisonment ?

    I dunno actually. Will most definitely depend on the country you live in

    An arrest wouldn’t show in records afaik. Actual imprisonment due to false claims would give you a strong case however. But also ask a fucking lawyer not devs.

    IANAL

    You can sue for any reason. The real problem for you is to prove to the court that you lost opportunities due to circumstances outside of your control and that the defendant was the primary cause of those circumstances.

    If you think you have enough evidence, seek assistance from a lawyer.

    I don't know what costs are outside of the US, but usually a consultation will run you anywhere from $100-$400 for a low to average skilled lawyer. $700+ for a really good lawyer.

    Also, that's usually per hour with a minimum of 1 hour consultation.
