Corrections correction

Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services

Date: 2010

A correctional centre inmate complained to the Ombudsman about an error in the paperwork recording the amount of time he was supposed to serve in jail. He said he was sentenced to serve 80 days, but the warrant of committal accompanying him to the jail erroneously stated it as 180 days. A new court order had even been made to correct the error, but the staff at the facility he was in did not appear to know about the change. He was anxious to ensure that the error was corrected, as his 80-day sentence was set to expire in three days. Ombudsman staff contacted the records department at the jail to ensure that the error was corrected and confirmed that the inmate would be released on the right date.
