Mistakenly released inmate back in custody

BALTIMORE - A woman who was "erroneously" released from prison on Dec. 3 was back in custody Friday, according to a release from the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

Sierra Scipioni was serving an 18-month sentence for burglary when she was released

A paperwork error in the department's commitment office allowed Scipioni to slip through the cracks. She was released on Dec. 3 when one sentence ended, however, she was also serving a second sentence which is ongoing.

The second sentence was never recorded, which allowed Scipioni to be released ahead of schedule, according to the release.

She was taken into custody Friday, Dec. 20 in South East Baltimore by DPSCS enforcement team without incident.
