Oops, Sorry We Let you out of Jail by Mistake

Earlier this week upon hearing that Sara Olson (crazy 60's criminal, radical) was let out of jail I thought about posting that it was too soon. Turns out I was right.
Former ’70s Radical Is Back in Custody After a Parole Error Just days after her release on parole, the former 1970s radical Sara Jane Olson was headed back to prison on Saturday to serve at least one more year after what corrections officials called an “administrative error” resulted in her early release.

Criticism that followed Ms. Olson’s release on Monday prompted a thorough review of her sentence and the timing of her parole, said Scott Kernan, an official with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
So, in other words, if people didn't complain they would never have checked their math. The follow up question is how often do they screw up on cases that aren't high enough profile to rate scrutiny?
