Mile Novakovic was convicted in absentia by Croatia for war crimes in 1995. He was finally apprehended this year. That's when authorities figured out they'd tried and convicted the wrong man. They meant to convict a higher-ranking soldier with the same name. "These things sometimes happen, more often when the court doesn't actually face a defendant," said Croatian Justice Minister Ingrid Anticevic Marinovic.
