    Spain acquits sole black man in ID parade.

    MADRID (Reuters) - A Nigerian convicted of assault in Spain was acquitted when he was found to have been the only black man in an identity parade used as key evidence in his conviction, the government-run news agency EFE reported on Tuesday
    Henry Osagiede was facing 10 years in prison after being found guilty in 2008 by a Madrid court for attacking one woman and sexually assaulting another in 2005, EFE reported, citing the Supreme Court ruling which acquitted him.
    "A badly assembled identity parade, with a lack of resemblance (between the suspects in the parade) can lead to mistaken identity and consequently an error of justice," EFE cited Spain's highest court as saying.

    You've got to be kidding right? What get's me here, is the lenght of time it took his lawdogs to discover, 'hold on a sec, what's wrong with this picture?'.

    'with a lack of resemblance can lead to mistaken identity'!!! Come on please!!
