Software fix to prevent early release of prisoners was delayed 16 times, officials say
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Corrections officials say that a software fix that would have prevented the erroneous release of thousands of prisoners early was delayed 16 times since it was first discovered in 2012. Corrections Secretary Dan Pacholke said Tuesday that it's still uncertain why that fix never occurred, but that an ongoing independent investigation will work to determine that.
