A Kansas man who was jailed in 2001 for a crime he didn’t commit is now requesting for $1million compensation after police found his criminal lookalike.
Richard Jones was arrested in 1999 after an eyewitness identified him as a wanted robber in Kansas, sadly the witness got the wrong person as the criminal and the innocent man look like twin brothers.
Jones journey to freedom started after other inmates repeatedly told him he looked like a criminal named Ricky Amos while he was in jail.
He regained his freedom last year as it later turned out there was no DNA or fingerprint evidence linking Jones to the crime.
He is seeking $1million compensation from the state of Kansas.
