Bounty Hunters' Bungle Leads KC Man to File Lawsuit
You know, there are a lot of stupid laws on the books. It seems that some of the laws that would just seem common sense are left out.

“Benson” refers to Arthur A. Benson II, an attorney representing Richard Allen Sexton. According to the Star, Sexton was mistaken for Richard Alan Sexton and arrested by a band of bounty hunters. His recourse? Nothing really. There’s no law holding bounty hunters liable for mistaking someone’s identity.
