Her appeal will be heard. Judge in the instructions did not mention the officer could have believed she was in her apartment or something like that.

I still find it absolutely weird that about 1/7th of the residents who were asked if they had gone to the wrong apartment said they had. :shock:

My understanding is the residents were not allowed to paint the doors or put any distinguishing features on them per apartment management

It seems to me anyone who had lived there more than a couple months would become very aware that it was easy to end up at the wrong apartment. At the very least she should have had a moment of doubt she was at the wrong door. Not to mention the furniture all being different. Not very observant for a cop.

I worked at an apartment complex as a maintenance man. There were 8 buildings and with 200 apartments. There were three brands of entry lock sets for which I had master keys. One time I was entering an apartment to do some work and I inadvertently used my apartment key, which was on the same key ring. The lock opened and it was then I realized I had done used my key. Out of curiosity I checked the back up keys in the cabinet for all the apartments. There were many keys that were the same as other apartments. Not just one or two, many. I didn't do a count, but probably only 10-12 different keys for each brand.

Some 35-40 years ago we lived in a Fox and Jacobs house in Plano. They had maybe four or five different house designs. No less than two or three times a month someone was trying to unlock my door with their keys. I must have pulled into the wrong driveway once or twice a month. The darned houses all looked alike. It was surprisingly easy to get confused about what part of the block you were on. I can imagine how easy an apartment like that would be to confuse.

I was at Whataburger. Returning to my White midsized SUV that looks like every other white midsized SUV there was an unused parking space to left of my SUV. I open the driver door and scare the living daylights out of the guy (who could have been a gang banger) sitting in the driver seat listening to the radio. It scared the words not acceptable on this forum out of me as well. I immediately apologized, as he was still trying to calm down. I said my car looks just like this and proceeded to get in the correct SUV that was right next to him.

Usually when I made this mistake the wrong car door is locked. I now have a ribbon tied to the door handle.

My understanding at Home Depot and Loews, the deadbolt door locks are keyed with like only 10 key cuts.

LOL... that exact same thing happened to me in my run of the mill grey Ford four door F150 at the post office parking lot.

When I was in the 4th grade (1957) my teacher gave me the key to her 1955 Chevrolet, described it as blue and white and told me to get the cardboard box out of the trunk. I found the car, opened the trunk and brought the box back to class. When she opened the box she asked me where I got it. We ended up going back to the parking lot where I showed her the car from which I removed the box. Afre she opened the trunk and I put the box back she took us to HER 1955 blue and white Chevrolet. She opened the trunk of her car and there was the box she wanted. What are the chances?????
