Really?? Woman Sentenced To Two Days In Jail Serves Five Months After Judge Forgets To Sign Her Release

This is so wrong.

Woman Sentenced To Two Days Serves Five Months

How do you forget to release someone from jail? Epic fail.

According to News And Tribune:

A participant of the Clark County Drug Court Treatment Program sentenced to 48 hours in the Clark County jail was released from the facility Thursday — 154 days after being placed behind bars.

Destiny Hoffman, 34, Jeffersonville, was ordered to serve two days in jail on Aug. 22 by Clark County Circuit Court No. 2 Judge Jerry Jacobi.

The sentence came after Hoffman provided a diluted drug screen result, a violation of the drug court program, which Jacobi oversees.

Jacobi instructed the Clark County Sheriff’s Office through a bond notice to hold Hoffman under no bond and for her “to be held until further order of the court.”

But Jacobi never issued that order, and Hoffman remained behind bars for more than five months.

Even though Hoffman was released from the jail Thursday, she has said she may seek a civil suit against Clark County, resulting in another black eye for the embattled drug treatment program.

After she gets done suing them, they won’t have enough money to keep the lights on at the jail.
