Denver (AP) - Colorado officials confirm they mistakenly mailed out more than $1.2 million in tax refunds that should have been withheld for unpaid victim restitution, child support and fines.

KMGH-TV in Denver reported this week that a substitute employee didn't properly load a computer program designed to catch refunds before they're mailed to people who owe money.

State Court Administrator Jerry Marroney told the station that most of the money probably won't be recovered.

Roxy Huber, executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue, apologized to people who should have benefited from the cash.

KMGH says most of the money was supposed to go to victims' assistance and compensation. Some also would have gone to the state road and general funds.
