Innocent woman jailed

A judge in January rebukes police for arresting Seemona Sumasar -- a business owner and mother -- on charges she pretended to be a cop to commit robberies. She was jailed for more than six months before being exonerated. A jury had convicted a man, Jerry Ramrattan, of orchestrating the frame-up to undermine her credibility in her rape accusation against him. He also was convicted of the rape.
