OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Washington officials say that one of thousands of prisoners erroneously released due to a computer error is already back behind bars on charges of vehicular homicide.
In a news release Monday, officials with the Department of Corrections say that Robert Jackson was arrested and charged for a Nov. 11 accident that killed Lindsay Hill, a woman who was riding in the car with him. She was 35.
The crash was at the corner of SE 60th St & 119th Ave SE in Bellevue. At the time, Bellevue police said the car struck an electrical box near a power pole.
Jackson was released from prison on Aug. 10, 2015. His correct release date should have been Dec. 6, 2015.
As many as 3,200 offenders have being wrongly released early since 2002.
Officials on Thursday indicated that three prisoners released since June had committed new crimes, but they downgraded that number to two Monday.
Officials are still searching for another offender who committed crimes during the period he should have been incarcerated. They did not release that inmate's name.
