Indiana cops mistakenly arrested an innocent woman because she happened to share the same first and last name, Ana Rodriguez, with a suspect facing an outstanding warrant. Despite the woman not having the same middle name, birthday, nor social security number, police imprisoned her for three days before she was able to post bond, then held the charges over her head for a year before they were thrown out.
The NWI Times reports:
The Lake and Newton county sheriff’s departments are being sued over locking up the wrong woman.This clerical error could have been resolved with the most basic of research, yet they held the charges over her head for a year.
