Rancho Cucamonga & Chino Police Brutality Attorney

Jerry L. Steering is a Rancho Cucamonga & Chino Police Brutality Attorney who sues police officers and deputy sheriffs, for, among other things, “police brutality” (“unreasonable force”), false arrests and their accompanying malicious criminal prosecutions. His law practice involves serving Rancho Cucamonga a “hot spot” for outrageous police misconduct.

Although Rancho Cucamonga is not nearly as heavily populated as other areas in Southern California, the “crime rate” of crimes and Constitutional Torts committed by the Sheriff’s Department is astounding. It seems that the Victor Valley is the hotbed for “cops gone wild.”

San Benardino County Sheriff John McMahon has carried on the longstanding tradition of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in using force upon innocents and thereafter procuring the bogus criminal prosecutions of the beating victim

These deputies in the High Desert are simply out of control, and nobody is going to do anything about; at least anybody from the Sheriff’s Department, or the Judges of the Victorville Court. These deputies “up the hill” have even been caught by a News Helicopter, beating-up a man who tried to elude them on horseback. The deputies knew that there was a Sheriff’s Department helicopter above, them, and knew that those pilots and crew would never “rat them out”. So, the beat the man who was trying to surrender to them after he had been tased. See, “Sheriff Orders Immediate Internal Investigation Into Arrest Seen on “Disturbing” Video”.

Mr. Steering also represents persons in both civil and criminal case. He is an expert in brutality / excessive force and false arrest cases; both civil and criminal. Mr. Steering has successfully sued San Bernardino County police agencies successfully, for many years now. Here are a few examples of cases that Mr. Steering has won against the Sheriff Department; an agency that has literally gone off of the deep end in the High Desert / Victor Valley area:

Although SB County is not nearly as heavily populated as other areas in Southern California, the “crime rate” of crimes and Constitutional Torts committed by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is astounding. It seems that San Bernardino County is the hotbed for “cops gone wild.” These deputies are simply out of control, and nobody is going to do anything about; at least anybody from the Sheriff’s Department, or the Judges of the SBCounty Superior Court.
