Since this involves Florida I'm guessing it's safe to assume that they failed to do something as basic as comparing fingerprints.

she lost her home while she sat in jail

Holy crap. To lose your home in such a (relatively) short period of time indicates she was in a precarious financial position. The system can eat those people up.

If she had or came from money it would have been solved the same day.

It took them a week the SECOND time to figure out they have the wrong person? I don't think she'll have to worry about losing her home as she will be able to buy the town when she's done with them.
 
2014-06-11 05:07:15 PM
From another article: " she shares the first and last name and general physical characteristics of another woman".

So... she has boobs and a vagina... JUST LIKE THE OTHER WOMAN!

What the fark do the individual cops care? They're not the ones that will pay out on any judgement.

In Florida's defense, meth users all look alike after a while.

Chalmette? They should have known they had the wrong woman after she opened her mouth and started talking. There's no mistaking a 'yat when you hear one.

She is certainly guilty of something, thus the arrests were likely justified.

That too, and the article says the real suspect is older and taller. Bet they didn't compare DOBs either.

Yes, but once the city pays out through the ass, they just might find their pensions cut under "austerity" measures.

She's about to make a whole bunch of it back. That is stunning incompetence. Well, it would be stunning but, you know, Florida.

As someone who manages a pharmacy, I'd like to offer this:
If i mixed up the identity of someone's medical records and sent them the wrong medicine along with their personal information, I could spend ten years in jail and a $1.5 million fine. Wrap your head around that consequence, then imagine what this woman just went through.
 
2014-06-11 06:25:21 PM
Did the cops get to use their nice new shiny armored personnel carrier and fully automatic weapons with muzzle flash suppression and silencers?


No?


I bet they wish they had.

If she was a renter and got evicted that would qualify as "losing her home" wouldn't it? And given how long she was in jail she could have missed two rent payments easily. There aren't many landlords that wouldn't evict by that point.

And, of course, the month she was in jail was a month without working. There aren't many of us that could go a month without working without serious consequences.

Riiight. Like it's the police department budget that suffers...NOT. Cutting benefits for cops is bad for re-election. They'll just take it out of the school's budget.
 
2014-06-11 06:32:45 PM
I guess this is a dumb question, but do they not have pictures of the people they're looking for? Or a way they could look at a picture on one of them newfangled laptop thingies, which they can use to connect to their cop internet?

They compare the picture to a person they're thinking of arresting and say, "Well, look at that, you have almost the same name as the person we're looking for. Sorry about that, run along and have a nice day." I guess not. That's stellar police work.

I guess cops in Floriduh are as dumb as the prosecutors.

They'll take it out of insurance. But in the long run, hitting the taxpayers and voters in their wallets is the only way to put things back on the proper course. Keep pounding away with litigation and make it cost as much as you can every time the cops pull something like this. Make them bleed rivers of money- not because of revenge or greed but because it must be done in order to make the taxpayers feel the pain; in the end they're the ones who can effect the change necessary and erect the safeguards required to help stem further abuses.

The pendulum has to swing, and the force that pushes it is money.

She was arrested the second time during a status hearing for the original charge that was dropped.  Wait, what?  Either some key details are being left out of the story or my head assplode.

I have a common name and I've been delayed (never denied, unless the employer "forgot" to report it to me) from getting jobs a couple of times due to some douchebag in TX who shares my first and last name and birth date. Not either of my middle names, not my birth year, not my social security number, or any previous addresses. But nope, background check companies see the the name and birth date and pull the trigger. Then it takes them a month to correct the issue.

"Soon" being a relative term.  They'll drag it out as long as they can, offer some sort of piddling settlement and so forth.  I'm guessing 3 to 5 years before she sees anything, if some crooked judge doesn't throw it out for "being against the better interests of the citizenry" or something.  Of course all the local law enforcement blunders are 'forgotten' round about election time or budget-drafting time, as well.  She'll be the only one that loses out, and will become nothing more than a mocking joke to the Powers That Be.

It could take half a dozen years before this gets to court. The municipality will lawyer up and fight tooth and nail to avoid paying and hope she dies in the mean time.

If I had a tenant and the 1st came and went without payment, I'd be annoyed.  After a few more days, I'd start to worry.  After maybe 5 days, I'd leave a voicemail.  After couple more days, I'd check with their employer and, if their employer didn't know where she was, I'd check with the cops.  The cops would tell me they'd extradited my tenant to Florida and I'd start eviction proceedings.  What else am I supposed to do at that point?  Even if I could get in touch with her and get the "I didn't do it" story, that's what  everybody says.

As for having/coming from money, heck yeah that'd make a difference.  She could have bonded out and been home the next day at the latest.  As a landlord, I'd probably never know she'd been gone.  It's nice to have money.  I did poor, then I did comfortable, now I'm trying secure.  Poor was definitely the worst of the three.

FTA: Ashley Nicole Chiasson spent 28 days in jail in January when she was mistaken for another person with the same first and last names and extradited to Clay County from her home state of Louisiana, the Florida Times-Union reported

This would imply that she was wrongly arrested in Louisiana, not Florida.  Why no one noticed in Clay County for a month, well, that's on them.
