Description

In June, The World-Herald reported that prison officials had misapplied state law in setting inmates' release dates, resulting in hundreds of the state's worst criminals being released too soon. The errors occurred despite two Nebraska Supreme Court rulings over a 10-year period spelling out how to correctly calculate the release dates. That report turned out to be the first of several related prison scandals that the newspaper would uncover over the next several months.
