Hollis robber freed a year early by mistake

JAMAICA — A convicted robber who was released mistakenly from jail a year early is back behind bars.

Kimmanie Waisome was caught by officers from the city Department of Correction Tuesday in Jamaica after he was freed last week.

Before his apprehension, Waisome went to his parents’ house in Hollis.

He was sentenced to one year in jail for participating in an armed robbery that took place in Manhattan in 2013.

His scheduled release date from Rikers Island is July 15, 2015, not July 15, 2014, when he was freed.
