Authorities say a July 2002 state Supreme Court ruling required the Corrections Department to apply good-behavior credits earned in county jail to state prison sentences. However, the programming fix ended up giving prisoners with sentencing enhancements too much so-called good time credit.
Sentencing enhancements include additional time given for certain crimes, like those using firearms or those committed near schools. Under state law, prisoners who get extra time for sentencing enhancements cannot have that time reduced for good behavior.
An analysis showed as many as 3,200 offenders were released early, and another 3,100 who are still incarcerated had inaccurate release dates.
A timeline provided by the governor's office shows the agency consulted with attorneys regarding the error the same month and scheduled a fix for the program. However, the coding fix was repeatedly delayed, and the governor says he didn't learn of the issue until last week, when corrections' officials notified his staff.
"For reasons we still don't yet fully understand, that fix never happened," Brown said. Corrections Department Secretary Dan Pacholke, who took over as head of the agency in October and just learned of the error last week, also said he couldn't yet explain what happened.
"How that did not rise up in the agency to the highest levels is not clear to me," he said.
Stay safe Washington fags.
I live in dudeweedlmao and this is fine, technicality error, not swedentier letting rapists walk around the next month. Your thread was attention grabby and initially had me shaking in my boots about Syrian immigrants
You realize how dumb you sound right?
>FOX NEWS LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING BECAUSE REDDIT TOLD ME SO.
How about you do your own fucking research then buddy? OP probably link the first of 50 articles on this subject.
Why are you even here?
You realize how dumb you sound for continuously replying to me?
>FOX NEWS IS ALWAYS ACREAT BECAUSE /POL/ TOLD ME SO
Why are you asking my questions ya dumbfuck?
Are you simply replying for the yous?
Hop off my penis.
That's a huge deal for vengeful people. I'm not surprised Faux News worded the article as so. OP might be just as scummy as well.
Most of the errors were less than three months and only one inmate had a release date off by 2 years and he is still incarcerated.
Try watching Fox Business sometime, you might actually learn something.
You probably won't though, but if you're getting your news from any other mainstream news outlet on cable, I guarantee they're just as biased as your Facebook feed perceives Fox to be.
I think in the US if the system fucks up then it's on them and you're off the hook. Though this might only be the case in some situations.
Either way, the story is probably bullshit since it's Fox News.
Fox News is as mainstream as news can get you fucking idiot. Not everything you agree with is an underground resistance to the ignorant masses.
You're literally defending the "HACKERS ON STEROIDS" channel.

Remember how the trains all ran on time under Stalin?
Because if they didn't, Stalin would kill your ass. So if a train was running behind, eh, maybe just fudge the numbers, cover your ass at all costs, and only tell the boss what he wants to hear.
That's exactly how this problem never rose through the ranks, you dumb cunt. Because you and all the other tin-pot dictators working in the justice system created that environment and fed that culture until your whole structure became completely fucking ineffective for anything but cover-ups and corruption.
