ORLANDO, Fla. -- An Orange County woman was thrown in jail for a crime she didn't commit. LaTanya Brown spent 16 hours in the Orange County Jail on Saturday morning because of a case of mistaken identity.

Two years ago, Brown found out another woman stole her identity, using her previous address and date of birth. Since then, Brown has been in the back of patrol cars several times.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office Identification Unit sent Brown an official letter proving she was not the LaTanya Brown with a criminal record. But Saturday morning, she was hauled off to jail in handcuffs and sat there until she was able to post her own $4,000. bond.
