HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was mistakenly released from an Alabama jail by posing as another inmate has turned himself in.
Al.com reports that authorities are investigating how 31-year-old Darren Jermaine Chipman was released in Madison County.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office says he turned himself in Sunday.
Authorities say the Huntsville man was released prematurely — on Saturday — while he was awaiting extradition to Georgia for a robbery offense and failure to register as a sex offender.
The sheriff’s office says that Chipman posed as another inmate and used that person’s information to get released.
