- Mike Anderson was sentenced to 13 years, but released on a clerical error.
- They realized the error at his intended release date, and only then picked him up.
- Today, a judge set him free.
Today a Missouri judge granted Mike Anderson credit for the past 13 years, even though he was not in custody. The general rule is that people are entitled to credit if they are released due to no fault of their own. Anderson’s case was up in the air, as he was out on a supersedeas appellate bond, but was never given a date to report… so the credit may not have been running. The judge, noting that he had made wholesale life changes, today agreed to give him full credit for the time, and allowed him to be released today.
