COCOA, Fla. (AP) — A man mistakenly released from a central Florida jail when he should have seen a judge is back in custody.
Lamanceo Dorsey was arrested April 30 on burglary and grand theft charges. He was allowed to post $7,000 bail that same day without appearing before a judge.
Brevard County authorities say that was a mistake because Dorsey should have been held without bail because he was on probation for a heroin conviction, according to rules established in an administrative order set by the local court. Jail staff released him, though, thinking his most recent arrest superseded the administrative order.
Florida Today reports (http://on.flatoday.com/SHqSWG ) that Dorsey was arrested again Wednesday at a Cocoa probation office. He'll remain in custody until authorities decide how to proceed with his probation violation.
