Inmate 'Negligently Released' From Bexar County Jail

A 39 year old man is back in custody after he was 'negligently released' from the Bexar County Jail early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Sheriff Javier Salazar says William Castillo was not present at an inmate head count at 3:30 this morning. He was found at about 6 a.m. on Medida Street, which is not far from the jail.

Castillo was arrested on Sunday for possession of a controlled substance and possession of a criminal instrument. He will now face charges of Escape from a Correctional Institution, a second degree felony.

No immediate word on what caused the 'negligent release.' It is the latest in a series of problems plaguing the Bexar County Jail involving inmates being mistakenly released.
