More Inmates Mistakenly Released in Marion County

Two more inmates were mistakenly released from the Marion County Jail, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

26-year-old Sasha Chiclana was released on Sunday but turned herself back in to authorities and was subsequently released on her own recognizance by a judge.  She had been charged with Promotion of Human Trafficking of a Minor and Promoting Prostitution, both felonies.  An internal investigation into her initial release is being conducted by the Sheriff's Office's Internal Affairs department.

A second inmate, 36-year-old Christopher Robinson was unintentionally released on Monday as the city moved to a new case management system.  Robinson, who has four pending cases against him, turned himself back in Tuesday.  He is not scheduled for release until July 8.

"As with other large-scale software conversions, issues are being addressed immediately by the appropriate entities once they are identified," said Sheriff's spokesperson Katie Carlson.  "The criminal justice stakeholders are continuing to work together to ensure a proper completion of the system conversion process."

Earlier this month, two other inmates were mistakenly released due to "computer exchange issues."  Both are back in custody.
