Man regains job after wrongful suspension

April 19, 2013

An Indianapolis man was suspended from his job as a school caregiver for four days after being mistakenly identified as a criminal. Richard Brown, 62, returned to work Wednesday at Lawrence Township schools after struggling for a week to convince state officials that he doesn't have a record, just a common last name. The district suspended him after the Indiana Department of Child Services notified school officials that at least three people with the same name had crime records.
