CLEVELAND — A Cuyahoga County Jail corrections officer was fired Friday following the mistaken release of an inmate.
The incident happened last month.
There was an apparent mix up with a burglary suspect who ended up getting released on a personal bond for an unrelated case from 2016.
He was supposed to remain held in the jail on the burglary charge with a bond set at $25,000.
According to a termination letter, the corrections officer didn’t notice the case number did not match up.
