As a child did you ever get punished for something you didn't do?

As a child my brother used to blame me for stuff he did even though I was not the one that did it. I would get the punishment and I would get so upset. I could not do anything about it because my mom would not believe me. It made me look like a bad kid. I know I was not. I had fibbed about a few things when I was a kid but I don't think I should have been blamed for other things that I did not do. My brother is the one always in trouble with the law and I am the one doing good in my life. I told my mom later on about the things he blamed me for as a kid and now she actually believes me. I hated how the true came out years later. I am sure this happens to alot of people. Life sometimes is not fair.

This happened to me all of the time as kid. My cousins were bad and they would get in all kinds of trouble. I also got in trouble for what they did even though I had nothing to do with it. I hated it.
