Can the officer be charged with violating their oath to protect being there was a missing report for this child at the time these events took place? 6 Answers as of May 08, 2014I have studied hours and hours over the past few years in many areas of law covering a case and trying to get it all together. My daughter was kidnapped. The charges only gave this woman a couple of days. Police let the woman go who took my child hours later when they pulled the suspect over then let her go. The whole time she kept my child thinking nothing was wrong.

I am sorry for the pain you endured, but to sue a public entity and/or its employees, you must first file a claim with the entity, normally within 6 months or so. A lawsuit would have to be filed within two years. The Police Department probably will not accept a complaint about an incident many years ago. The officer involved will probably argue that he did not have detailed enough of a description of the woman to think she was involved in the kidnap. I hope your daughter is doing all right. I think you will have to try to lessen your negative emotions as much as you can.

I do not understand your question, the problem here is with the kidnapper, not the peace officer. Even though the woman may have been pulled over some hours before and allowed to continue on her way is not an issue until after she kidnapped the child. Even then if the officer did not recognize the child was kidnapped certainly the officer would not be at fault. The kidnapper is the criminal.
