Franklin County Jail Inmates Punished For Inmate's Early Release


Five Franklin County Jail employees have been punished after mistakenly giving an inmate her early release.  Sheriff Zach Scott says a lieutenant was suspended for a day and four other deputies and civilians received written reprimands for not following procedures.  They allowed Quanetta James, a convicted identity thief, out early on May 6, then took two months to catch the paperwork mistake. Scott says the employees were supposed to turn James back over to the state prison system.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
