- 350Hk1169 k. Erroneous Release.
A convicted inmate who, through no fault of his or her own, is erroneously released from custody by the State is entitled to time credit toward the expiration or discharge of a sentence, because it would be unreasonable, and would defy human nature, to expect one who has been erroneously released from custody to insist to the authorities that he should be re-incarcerated.
