Kanawha Circuit Court Judge's Docket to be Examined
The West Virginia Supreme Court is taking a deeper look at Kanawha County Circuit Court after an inmate was mistakenly released from jail. Circuit Court Judge Carrie Webster said Sunday that she did not intend to issue an order that ultimately let Jeremy Carter out of the South Central Regional Jail. In a written statement, Webster said her order dismissed a separate motion for a psychiatric evaluation and she did not direct the charge against Carter to be dropped, nor for him to be released from jail. The Supreme Court issued an administrative order Tuesday for an official inquiry into Webster's docket.
