Default SC inmate mistakenly kept in prison nearly 2 extra years after error

SC inmate mistakenly kept in prison nearly 2 extra years after error

"An inmate was kept in a South Carolina prison for nearly two years past the end of his sentence due to a Department of Corrections error, according to a letter from the department’s head to state legislators. Another was mistakenly released weeks early.

Members of the S.C. House’s Legislative Oversight Committee grilled Corrections officials about the sentencing errors Wednesday.

“Do you believe that is cruel?” Rep. Micah Caskey, R-Lexington, said. “We’re talking about keeping someone in prison for almost two additional years. … If that’s cruel and unusual, I’d like someone to tell me how that comports with our Constitution.”

** the department would not be taking actions to compensate the inmate who was kept for two extra years. But, he added, he was sure there would be a lawsuit about the matter.**




Ya think????? And the dept should pay for his attny's fees as well as whatever monetary award he gets
