In January, Clay County, Florida, sheriff's deputies arrested Ashley Nicole Chiasson on a charge of grand theft. She spent 28 days in jail before they figured out they were supposed to have arrested Ashley Odessa Chiasson. Then, in May, they arrested her again for attempting to pass bad checks. She spent a week in jail before they figured out they were supposed to have arrested the other Ashley Chiasson. After local media began investigating the story, and after Ashley Nicole Chiasson's attorney sent them a letter informing them she intended to sue, the sheriff's office finally arrested the right Ashley Chiasson.
