KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - An Orlando mother was arrested after disembarking from a cruise ship, mistaken for a suspected prostitute wanted in central Florida.
Thirty-one-year-old Paola Londono spent more than 36 hours in a South Florida jail before her attorney could persuade a judge to let her out. She had been mistaken for a woman with the same name, but who was seven years younger, five inches taller and looked completely different.
The Osceola County Sheriff's Office says dispatchers relied on incorrect information when Broward County investigators called to confirm they had the right suspect.
Londono was returning from a Caribbean cruise with her family.
The real suspect faces charges of prostitution, child abuse and possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
