A Kansas City man has filed a lawsuit against a group of bounty hunters, a bonding company, and its agents after he was mistaken for another man in July and was taken to Springfield. Richard Allen Sexton, a designer at Hallmark Cards, was mistaken for a St. Louis County parole violator named Richard Alan Sexton. This isn’t the first time the Hallmark employee has been mistaken for the other Richard Sexton. He found out about the other guy two years ago when a collection company started hounding him. But what happened in July was the final straw for the Hallmark Sexton. He pointed out that his Social Security number was different from that of the wanted man. One of the bounty hunters informed him documents can be forged. In Springfield, the bounty hunters realized they had the wrong guy and returned Sexton to Kansas City.
