Wrong man held 10 months for arson charge
McLennan County, TX — Authorities have dropped charges on a man who has been wrongfully charged with arson for the past ten months.
Jorge Segura Rodriguez was mistaken for another man by the same name, who has been wanted since 2006 for an arson charge.
Rodriguez was stopped by Woodway police officers and placed in jail. It wasn't until Rodriguez's attorney compared his picture to the picture of the actual arson suspect that the mistake was realized.
Rodriguez is also being detained at the McLennan County Jail for an immigration hold.
