INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man accused of not registering as a sex offender was mistakenly released from the Marion County Jail.
Torrey Pargo, 27, of Indianapolis, was brought back into custody on Sunday.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is blaming the court system. According to a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, a wrong code is behind the latest mistake.
Records show the Marion Superior Court issued an order Friday to release Pargo from jail. Pargo was being held for failure to register as a sex or violent offender.
The sheriff’s office says he was supposed to be sent to the Marion County Community Corrections to be set up in the GPS monitoring program, but the court did not enter the proper code for that transfer to happen.
Pargo was out of jail for several hours before he was taken back into custody. Officials said he is now on GPS monitoring.
