Breaking free: Ohio jail mistakenly frees accused murderer because of ‘typographical error’

An error made by a court in Ohio led to the mistaken release of an accused murderer from a jail earlier this week.
Amarion Sanders, 22, was released from Cuyahoga County Jail on Monday afternoon, and several law enforcement agencies are now searching for him, Newsweek reported.
In a filing, a judge wrote, “Unfortunately, due to this court’s typographical error, the defendant was released from the county jail where he had been held because he failed to make bond,” according to Newsweek.
The error occurred due to the similarity of the docket numbers between Sanders’ case and that of Antonio Seymore, a 35-year-old accused of assault and theft, who was supposed to be released after his case was dismissed on Monday. Sanders’ case number is 685908, while Seymore’s is 685909.
Sanders was being held on a $1 million bond, facing several charges, including aggravated murder, related to the killing of Derek Driskill, a 39-year-old father-of-three who was shot in the head outside a convenience store in Cleveland on September 23 last year, as reported by Cleveland.com at the time.
