SC woman wrongly released from prison back in jail

May 6, 2010 6:59:00 AM - thestate.com
A South Carolina woman mistakenly released from prison is back in custody.

Multiple media outlets reported Wednesday that 45-year-old Rachel Easterly of Surfside Beach was mistakenly released from a Columbia prison last week.

The veterinarian had pleaded guilty in 2008 to leaving the scene of an accident involving death and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Sixteen-year-old Tommy Sullivan Jr., of Garden City was killed in 2007 as he walked along a highway in his hometown.

Investigators say Easterly had tried to cover up the crime.
