|By heraldonline.com- Emily Bohatch & Tom Barton|
The S.C. Department of Corrections for two years released inmates well before the end of their sentences, officials at the department confirmed Friday.
Ten inmates were mistakenly let go because of an error made when calculating the prisoners’ sentences, Department of Corrections spokeswoman Chrysti Shain said. She confirmed the early releases after an inquiry from The State.
Of the 10, four have yet to be recaptured, Shain said. The Department of Corrections is still working with the courts to take steps to re-incarcerate them.
