Police, sheriffs seek inmate mistakenly released a week early

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:47 p.m. HST, Sep 07, 2013

Police and state sheriffs are looking for a 51-year-old Oahu Community Correctional inmate who was mistakenly released Friday.

OCCC inmate Edward Robins was released at 4:55 p.m. Friday, but was supposed to be released Sept. 13.

Public Safety spokeswoman Toni Schwartz said the error was due to a complication with the paperwork.

Robins was serving time for third-degree assault.

Anyone who knows Robins' whereabouts is asked to call police.

The only one who should be investigated are the employees who let him go. If they try to charge this guy with anything, an attorney is going to have a field day suing the state.

You know they always have some bogus excuse for every mess the prisons create. Escapes, failure to release on time, releasing too soon, we have the most incompetent officials running the place and it will never change due to our politicians running the dump.
