Man wrongfully arrested twice loses due process lawsuit

In 1989, a man named Santiago Rivera was arrested. He allegedly committed a crime for which a warrant was issued four years earlier. But he was soon released because fingerprint data proved he was not the man the police were looking for. So why did they arrest him? Because the real perpetrator was also named Santiago Rivera. In addition, the two Riveras shared the same birthday -- and the warrant described a man that was within one inch of height and ten pounds in weight of the wrongfully arrested Rivera.

Even though the phrase double jeopardy is a common phrase in the criminal lexicon, it is not very common to hear about cases where the term is invoked. Most people would think that the prosecution always has its ducks in a row when charging someone with a crime, or trying to earn a conviction for a crime.
