SAN ANTONIO – An inmate was mistakenly released from the Bexar County Jail Monday night, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a press release.
Inmate Mitchell Boren, 56, was released by Adult Detention Center staff at 9:37 p.m. Monday without having made the necessary arrangements with Haven for Hope, as ordered by the court as part of a jail diversion program.
Boren was in custody on a charge of assault bodily injury - class A misdemeanor.
Boren was located at 5:35 a.m. Tuesday and transported to Haven for Hope for processing.
The error stemmed from faxed paperwork, according to the Sheriff's Office.
KSAT has reported on more than a dozen erroneous releases of inmates from the Bexar County Jail in 2019.
