Florida man serving 23 years in prison back in custody after accidental release, authorities say


A 29-year-old convicted criminal walked out of a Florida prison last week after he was accidentally released decades early and enjoyed four days of freedom before turning himself into U.S. Marshals on Monday, authorities said.

Cedrick Gant’s accidental freedom stemmed from a paperwork mix-up when he was transferred from the Lake County Jail to the Brevard County Jail to face sentencing for several misdemeanor charges, Lake County Sheriff’s Office Lt. John Herrell told FOX35.
