Bluffton man files lawsuit against Hardeeville police

Posted: Updated:
BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

A Bluffton man accused of conning Latinos in the Lowcountry is suing the Hardeeville Police Department - saying the accusation is false.

The Island Packet reports that Hardeeville police arrested Henry Roldan last year on charges that he targeted undocumented immigrants by posing as a bail bondsman but pocketed the cash they paid him to get their relatives out of jail.

In the lawsuit, Roldan says he was an interpreter and facilitator to connect Latinos with services including transportation and lawyers.

The lawsuit seeks damages for defamation, wrongful failure to train and supervise police officers, false imprisonment, abuse of process and malicious prosecution. Read full story in the Island Packet.
