A mistake sends a Wichita man, who thought he was free, back to work release.
Michael Miller's prison reports show he served time behind bars for two counts of drug possession. After serving six months in work release he was supposed to be set free on September 14.
"My dad was supposed to be released on September, 14," said Miller's daughter Michelle Brixius. "They released him. The next day they made him go back to work release to spend another six months."
The Kansas Department of Corrections says Miller was released based on a single calculation error. Since the mistake was discovered, an additional step has been added to double check the process. The D.O.C says Miller has been a model prisoner and it apologizes for the error.
