Donae Antoinette Richmond is not Antoinette Yvonne Jackson, who authorities said has an extensive rap sheet of criminal history.
Jackson, according to police, has stolen Richmond's identity numerous times. Richmond has no criminal history.
Richmond said she was handcuffed during a traffic stop and almost went to jail because of outstanding warrants against Jackson, who is her cousin. Some cousin.
Jackson's use of Richmond's identity dates back several years while Richmond lived in Chicago. She said when she got back to Decatur, she started having police trouble and learned that Jackson had assumed her identity with documents including her Social Security card.
The Decatur Police Department has established Richmond is not Jackson and should make that widely known — with other local law enforcement agencies as well, including the Morgan County Sheriff's Department.
Richmond's credit also has been damaged, and in that case, Alabama lawmakers could possibly help by making it easier to expunge records of identity theft victims. Richmond has been victimized enough.
