An Indiana woman who was sentenced to two days in jail ended up serving five months in what one judge called a “big screw up.”

Destiny Hoffman, 34, was sentenced on Aug. 22 to spend 48 hours in jail after she was caught trying to dilute her drug test as part of the Clark County Drug Court Treatment Program, the News and Tribune reported.

Judge Jerry Jacobi instructed the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to hold Hoffman under no bond and for her “to be held until further order of the court” — an order the court never gave.

Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Michaelia Gilbert came to Hoffman’s aide and sought an immediate status hearing.

Hoffman was released from jail Thursday by Special Judge Steven Fleece, who in court called the event “a big screw up,” the New York Daily News reported.
