Convict behind bars after mistakenly being released early

By  | 

DENVER (AP) A Colorado convict sent back to prison after being mistakenly released 90 years early says it was cruel and unusual punishment to put him back behind bars after he reformed his life. An appeal filed yesterday in the case of Rene Lima-Marin also says his constitutional rights were violated when a judge in January ordered him to finish his sentence after he started a family during nearly six years of freedom. In 2000 Lima-Marin got 98 years in prison for multiple counts of robbery, kidnapping and burglary.
