An Atlanta woman was mistakenly imprisoned for Almost 2 months because police confused her with someone else with the same first name.
Teresa Culpepper says she called police to report that her truck had been stolen; But when they showed up at her home, they arrested her for aggravated assault committed by another Teresa.
"All she has is the same first name. The only descriptions that match are: 'Teresa' and 'black female,'" Culpepper's attorney, Ashleigh Merchant told The Lookout. Culpepper, who is 47, didn't have the same address, birth date, height, or weight as the Teresa who was supposed to be arrested.
