The man mistakenly released from the Curry County Jail in September is now back in custody.
46 year old Willie Windom was re-captured at eight this morning. Authorities just realized the mistake on Tuesday during a Texas Department of Criminal Justice Audit.
Windon was accidentally released after a district court dismissed his rape and incest charges.
Instead of releasing him, they should have sent windom back to Texas to serve out a 12-year drug sentence.
