Marc Stephens vs. City of Englewood
Marc Stephens, and his brother Tyrone Stephens, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the City of Englewood, Englewood Police Department, Det. Marc McDonald, Det. Desmond Singh, Det. Claudia Cubillos, Det. Santiago Incle Jr., Det. Nathaniel Kinlaw, Nina C. Remson Attorney At Law, LLC, and Comet Law Offices, LLC. The complaint alleges False Arrest, Conspiracy, falsifying evidence, False imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, legal malpractice, and several other cause of actions.
Marc Stephens vs City of Englewood is of high public concern because the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court’s decision which states that Police officers are allowed to fabricate testimony in court in order to create probable cause against the accused. This will lead to more individuals being incarcerated for crimes they did not commit.
