Accidental Inmate Release

By Bill O'Neil

Changes will be made. That's the word from Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau after an inmate who had finished serving a misdemeanor sentence was released from jail before she was to be turned over to the state to finish serving a separate felony charge. Pamerleau said "Unfortunately, the paperwork for the felony charge did not reach our booking section in time, and that allowed for the inmate to be released"

The Sheriff tells 550 KTSA News the woman was taken back in to custody within two hours. Pamerleau says officials will look to make the system more efficient--such as delivering paperwork electronically, going forward.
