CAIRO, Egypt (WPVI) --An Egyptian toddler has been sentenced to life in an apparent case of mistaken identity.
The three-year-old boy was mistakenly sentenced last week.
He was found guilty of various crimes committed during a protest in 2014, when he was just sixteen-months-old.
Authorities are now realizing it was a case of mistaken identity.
The military released a statement saying the person wanted in the case was actually a 16-year-old who had the same name as the young boy, and who escaped authorities.
