SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco jail wants its inmate back after mistakenly releasing the man.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/2bI1uh8 ) that a court clerk accidentally indicated that all charges against 20-year-old Victor Rodriguez had been dismissed and San Francisco County jail deputies released him Wednesday night.

Rodriguez actually had several months left on his sentence and was booked last November on suspicion of robbery, battery and resisting arrest. He was twice charged with making threats against police.

San Francisco Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Eileen Hirst says the judge was planning to sentence Rodriguez to a year in county jail for one of the threatening charges. She says there is no reason to think the clerk’s mistake was malicious.
