LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Beatrice man is asking the Nebraska Supreme Court to intervene in the state’s decision to return him to prison after officials determined he was released too early.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1pZPgeJ ) 40-year-old Kena Jackson is objecting to his return to prison. In documents filed Thursday, his lawyer Jerry Soucie notes Jackson was returned to prison without going before a judge or receiving a hearing.

Soucie says Jackson had worked full-time since being released from prison Nov. 23 after serving time for a drug conviction. Although he was eligible for parole in November, officials released him with no supervision.

Jackson is now being held at a McCook work camp.

He was among 45 inmates sought by the state after media reports of improper sentences.
