This is regoddamndiculous! If you do the crime, pay the time. This person apparently did so. So leave him alone. He should have every right to seek damages. His freedom was taken away for a period of time. Somebody needs to stand up against ineptness within our local Government.

I hope the law suite goes through and he wins. I agree with "Get Real" his freedom was taken away because good ole Lebanon County aren't doing there jobs right. There are probably more people that have paid their debt but not accounted for. Where is the money? Just like that tax guy (can't remember his name) that stole all those peoples tax dollars. Lebanon County has got to be the worst county I have seen yet and half the people if not more are probably crooks in one way or another. Everyone in that court house thinks they are god. I hope they get a peice of justice put against them. As the paper says - they say it is regrettable but not illegal. Sorry - it SHOULD be illegle to incarcerate someone that doesn't even belong there in the first place. They were the ones that messed up and all the people on the law abiding side should have some kind of consequence to pay for their mistake. This guy obviously made a mistake and paid so they should pay for their mistake. BUT - that probably won't happen. Makes me sick to know that law literally can get away with murder.

Lebanon county is all about the money..with all there employees stealing most of it..This town is so corrupt that most out of town lawyers will not even practice here...I have seen this corruption first hand..If erb was attacked by inmates the county should be sued. They have to learn that they are not above the law..the ppl that serve in Lebanon know there job is a lifetime appt..so unlike the rest of us who have to prove ourselves everyday they dont have to..I have heard a juvenile probation officer say right in a court room waiting area that she dont like kids..and she was proud of it,,this is unacceptable..ive seen district att. laugh about cases when the defendent is right there..juvenile probation officers harrassing kids just for there OWN amusement..lebanon co. is corrupt

The county should lose Lisa Arnold in the jail for 10 days, and chalk it up to a lost paperwork error.

(multiple ironies here)

The office can have a reality makeover in her absence. Maybe a pizza party, too.

Now if they did that then she would come to realize that it is unfair, unjust, uncalled for, and quite possibly illegal in her eyes; because she is were she don't wanna be by MISTAKE. I pitty the poor people that are comitted for a crime and do YEARS, then eventually they get the real person that belongs behind bars and say "oops - sorry, we made a mistake". Doesn't matter that they took many years of a persons life away and from the people that surround them. Kids maybe?- great way to mess with a childs mind law inforcement!!!! They can do that but we can't spank a child anymore without the law getting involved & claiming child abuse. System is unfair and crooked.

Wow, that was a run-on sentence. Some civil servant dropped the ball. Sounds all-too-familiar.

The guy has a right to attorney when he was arrested. So either he gave up his right to lawyer which was his fault or his lawyer dropped the ball.

This is why you are entitled to have an attorney.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney to drop a ball ??

If it costs too much, I can just drop a ball by myself.

How can someone give up a lawyer and his rights when they didn't even think they needed one or the thought of losing his freedom in the first place. The guy didn't even have a chance for any ball to fall so I really would like to know what for legal system you stand by because it probably is an unjust/corupt system.

I don't know ? Ask CBOW how much it would cost her daughter to drop the ball on a client, so the state could make a case.
