Innocent Girl Held A Week In North Platte Jail


Quote:
“We are horribly sorry,” the cop said.
The 17-year-old girl who was wrongly locked in jail for seven days might be feeling terribly lucky.
Amanda Sylvester might still be in jail, facing criminal charges that included aiding and abetting a robbery, were it not for an anonymous tip to a Crimestopper hotline.
Her arrest and arraignment stemmed from mistaken identity, according to Lieutenant Rick Ryan of the North Platte Police Department.
“Amanda Sylvester was not involved in the robbery,” Ryan said. “We have no information or any reason to believe that Amanda is involved in drugs or any illegal activity. We are horribly sorry about what happened.”
A week later, the Crimestopper tip led to the arrest of Kayce Schildhauer, 19, of North Platte.

I guess "Sorry" makes it all better.

True, true...

But the girl was held in jail for a damn week, and being charged as an adult!

Shouldn't they have to make this up to her somehow?
I'd be suing if it were me falsly arrested.
