Wife returns husband to jail following error in releasing him

He enjoyed less than two hours of freedom before his wife realized the error and turned him in

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports James Rynerson was in custody late last month at the Mesa County Jail on a $2,000 (200,000) cash bond while awaiting prosecution on menacing, disorderly conduct and trespass charges.

Rynerson, 38, was released after Mesa County sheriff's deputies at the Jail mistook him for another inmate, Marvin March.

Procedure

Mesa County Sheriff's Sgt. Henry Stoffel said Wednesday that jail employees broke procedure when they failed to check Rynerson's wristband and picture.

An investigation is ongoing to determine whether jail policy around the housing list needs to be updated.

He credited Rynerson's wife for returning her husband to custody.
