The Denver Sheriff Department can’t seem to keep its calendar straight. The agency has punished four deputies in the past month for letting inmates out of jail at the wrong time, according to The Denver Post.

People have been released anywhere from a year early to 24 days late; in response, the sheriff has ordered an audit, Noelle Phillips reports. Head over to the Post for more details on how this even happened.
