FOX San Antonio - FOLLOW UP STORIES
We have a Fox Follow-up on a story we told you about Monday on how an inmate was mistakenly released from jail. The Bexar County district clerk says an investigation reveals the court was not at fault. Last week, Vincent Barnett was sentenced to five years in prison. District Clerk Donna McKinney tells Fox San Antonio that all the information that was required to keep Barnett in jail
was entered March 7 by the court the same day he was sentenced. However, the Bexar County Jail released him the next day. Barnett was caught and arrested on Saturday. McKinney says, "There was no miscommunication and no paper foul-up on the part of the district clerk's office." Our attempts to reach the Bexar County Sheriff's Office for comment were unsuccessful.

Fort Bliss chaplain gets 6 months for assault
June 20, 2013 11:51 GMT
FORT BLISS, Texas (AP) -- A chaplain at a West Texas post has been sentenced to six months of confinement after pleading guilty to assault and battery on a female civilian.
Officials at Fort Bliss on Wednesday night announced the penalty for Maj. Geoffrey Alleyne, who's been in the military for 24 years.
Officials say the charges stem from a series of encounters last year between Alleyne and a civilian employee who worked as an assistant to other chaplains.
Alleyne pleaded guilty to assault and battery against a civilian employee on Fort Bliss, making a false official statement and conduct unbecoming an officer.
Fort Bliss Chaplain Lt. Col. Karen Meeker says the Chaplain Corps regrets the incident.
