While Mr Jones (right) was in prison, other inmates repeatedly told him he looked like a criminal named Ricky Amos (left).

A man jailed for armed robbery in 1999 is seeking nearly $1million in compensation after police found his criminal lookalike.

Metro UK reports that Richard Jones, from Kansas City, was released last year after a judge called into question his original conviction. He had spent 17 years in prison because an eyewitness said he was the robber.

Jones lives on the other side of Kansas while his lookalike lived near where the robbery took place. It later turned out there was no DNA or fingerprint evidence linking Jones to the crime.

He has now filed a petition seeking $1million in compensation from the state of Kansas.

His lawyer, Richard Ainsworth, is hoping that he will get a certificate of innocence and be compensated so he could finally move on with his life.

Jones said he missed seeing his 24-year-old and 19-year-old daughters grow up.
