What Happens When Police Arrest the Wrong Person?

After a deadly shooting at a Texas party last year, Brandon Gonzales was arrested and charged with capital murder. Nine days later he was released from jail and his charges were dropped. Even though he was exonerated, the wrongful arrest still haunts him to this day. Googling his name brings up pages of news articles about his arrest – but few that report that his case was dismissed. Gonzales is just one example of a life turned upside down by a wrongful arrest.
