Q: Can your wrongful conduct result in both criminal charges and a civil lawsuit against you seeking monetary damages?
A: Yes. A police officer in the Town of Culpeper, Va., was charged with murder, malicious shooting into an occupied vehicle, maliciously shooting into an occupied vehicle resulting in a death and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. The unarmed occupant that was killed was shot multiple times while sitting in the parking lot of a Catholic school. A $5 million dollar civil wrongful death case has been filed against the officer.
