"Richard Jones spent 17 years behind bars all because he looked remarkably like another man, Ricky Amos. Richard’s worst nightmare came true when he was convicted of a crime he didn’t commit, simply because of eyewitness misidentification.

ABC News reported that Richard Jones’ conviction has now been overturned after the University of Kansas School of Law and the Midwest Innocence Project were able to uncover what’s now firmly believed to be a wrongful conviction."
