Female inmate mistakenly freed from Tulsa County Jail

Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ A clerk at the Tulsa Jail has been fired following the mistaken release of a female inmate who was wanted in Osage County.

Courtney K. Thompson, 20, of Pawhuska, was released Sunday morning after posting bond on driving under the influence and traffic charges. She had been jailed since Saturday night.

Chris Howard, spokesman for Corrections Corporation of America, which runs the jail, said the jail received information from the police about an hour before Thompson was released that she was to be held for Osage County authorities relating to charges of assault with a dangerous weapon.

``We received the add-on charge, and the intake clerk failed to enter it into the computer,'' Howard said.

The clerk was fired, Howard said.

Thompson was not back in custody Monday at either the Tulsa Jail or the Osage County Jail.
