A school cafeteria worker and a plumber from Maryland said their lives have been turned upside down after court documents mistakenly identified them as the police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

A lawyer representing Alicia White, a cafeteria worker from Baltimore who happens to share a name with one of the arrested officers, said her client’s life had been turned into a “living hell” since the court records were made public, the Baltimore Sun reports.

“Her address, her height, her weight, her driver’s license number – all of the information was my client’s information,” the lawyer said.

Officials have not yet commented on the error, though court records have since replaced the defendants’ home addresses with a general address for the Baltimore Police Department.

Freddie Gray suffered a lethal spinal injury while under police custody, triggering an explosion of protests and riots across Baltimore last week.
