WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Officials at the Trumbull County Jail said outdated technology is to blame for a mix-up that resulted in the wrong person being released.
A man who went to the jail to bail out a woman early Friday morning said the wrong person got out.
Jail records show Amber Skinner was released from the jail around 2:45 a.m. After a search for her, police said she is now back in jail.
Andrea Gintert was the one who was actually supposed to be released. She got out of jail a few hours later.
Jail officials said the mix-up was an honest mistake and that the intercom system is dated.
They plan on getting a new system and reviewing their policy to see if staff needs additional training.
Neither woman was charged with violent crimes.
