MANCHESTER, Ky. (WYMT) - A man was released from the Clay County Detention Center last week, but he is back behind bars now.
Kentucky Department of Corrections officials say human error led to 47-year-old Delbert Reynolds being released on August 1st, which was one month early. Officials say say he returned to the jail on his own when he was notified.
"There are obviously human staff members entering information in in every facility that houses offenders...And obviously being human, they occasionally can make a mistake such as this, entering an eight instead of a nine," said Lisa Lamb, the spokesperson for the Kentucky Department of Corrections.
Reynolds will be released on September 1st. He is serving time for possession of a controlled substance and trafficking of a controlled substance.
