ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man who had been mistakenly released from jail due to a paperwork error is back behind bars.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2si2alA ) John Sena, who is charged with assaulting two police officers on June 17, was released the next day on his own recognizance after being arraigned on two counts of battery on a peace officer.

But Sena was on probation at the time of his arrest. He just got done serving time in jail after he was convicted of assaulting an officer in 2011.

The U.S. Marshals Service states paperwork to keep Sena behind bars because of the violation wasn’t sent to the Bernalillo County Jail fast enough.

U.S. Marshals named Sena New Mexico’s Most Wanted Violent Offender in an effort to get him back into jail.
