Typically not. If a person is being unlawfully arrested, then Mississippi law explains that there is a right to defend oneself and others from that unlawful arrest. The tricky part is establishing that the underlying arrest was done illegally (i.e., without probable cause, maliciously, etc.).
Basically I had a warrant because someone either driving my car, or with a car like mines was running from highway patrol.. so I have all these tickets, but I have witnesses that was with me the whole time. Between my tag being stole the day before, and dropping my car off at the body shop... Read more »
Unfortunately, there is nothing legally that you can do as far as seeking pain and suffering from either the ex girlfriend or the child's father. That being said, if the child turns out to be yours, then you would have parental rights that would attach.

This is horrible! Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. That being said, because you are talking about a school, there are some very strict rules that you need to following order to preserve any claim.
