Men and suspects look too much like innocent jails, more bloody than TV shows
4hw.org: Recently, a special event happened in the United States. The man was arrested for 17 years for no reason because he looked so similar to the suspect. It's incredible. The netizen can't help shouting: this pot is so cruel!
According to the mirror on June 11, Richard Jones, a Kansas man in the United States, has been jailed for 17 years as a surrogate under the condition that he has the same name as the suspect, looks similar, and both the victim and the witness have misidentified him. Now, he is finally released from prison, freed and reunited with his family.
In 1999, Jones was jailed for armed robbery. At the first trial, he denied his' crime 'and claimed that he had been with his girlfriend and family and that there were no fingerprints, DNA or other physical evidence at the scene that he was the robber. But the victim and a witness both identified him as a robber, and the jury agreed that he had committed a serious robbery, so poor Jones was jailed innocently for 17 years.
In 2015, Jones told the investigators of the white washing plan what happened to him, and suddenly something changed. In prison, Jones's two inmates told him that he was exactly the same as the real 'Jones'. 'when I saw the pictures of us, I was convinced. 'said Jones. Strangely, he and the suspect not only look the same, but also have the same name, and they live only a few miles apart.
At the latest hearing, witnesses said they couldn't distinguish Jones from the real suspect, and the judge said there was no evidence that Jones had committed a crime and he was acquitted.
At the moment, Jones has not filed any criminal charges against his double, saying he cherishes the hard won freedom. 'I don't believe in luck, but I believe I'm a blessed man. 'Jones said with emotion,' although the story is tortuous, my children can understand it. I'm enjoying my freedom and time with my family. '
