An innocent man, father of a young kid and in a relationship with his girlfriend was arrested and jailed for 17 long years. This was for a crime he did not commit, but his look-alike did. Richard Anthony Jones did not only got mistaken with the facial feature identity in a robbery but also his name was similar to that of the real accused. Taken into custody from his girlfriend's house, this man faced prison for 17 years, as an innocent.

Kansas City Police have found the actual criminal, who is named as Ricky Amos, arrested him and then freed the innocent dad. The eye-witnesses who confirmed that Richard was the one committed the crime resulted in his jail term. There was no DNA or even Fingerprint evidence to make the arrest and even prosecute the man.

A 17-year fight with the law, the police officer caught the actual man, his doppelganger. Richard was now released from prison and he is to be compensated for the irresponsibility the Law has shown with a Million Dollars. An attorney who was in this case for very long has said, " Everybody has a doppelgänger. Luckily we found his".

The arrest happened when people and supporters of Richard, the dad found Ricky Amos living near a Walmart store in Kansas. They gave evidence and pictures, submitted to the judge, who has ordered for a release of the man, last year.

In the year 1999, Richard was arrested on the allegation that he was the one involved in a robbery at a parking lot in the same Walmart, where the actual accused was found last year. To confirm the actual robber, the eye-witness was brought in again for a recheck. This time, the witnesses could not tell the difference between the two.

Kansas City Attorney General Derek Schmidt has said, " We are committed to faithfully administering the new mistaken-conviction statute the legislature enacted. In this case, it was possible on the existing record to resolve all issues quickly, satisfy all of the statute's requirements, and agree to this outcome so Mr Jones can receive the benefits to which he is entitled by law because he was mistakenly convicted".

A $1.1 Million Dollar compensation was declared and the man got back to his family and friends, safe at his home.
