Inmate freed by mistake

Used brother's Social Security number to get out

Posted: Tuesday, October 22, 2013 2:00 pm

Authorities launched a manhunt for a Pike County jail inmate who was released by mistake Monday evening — less than a month after he received a 50-year prison sentence for allegedly raping and kidnapping a woman at gunpoint.

Pike County sheriff's officials said 29-year-old Douglas Earl Stevenson Jr., 2012 W.A. Walker Road, left the jail around 7:50 p.m.
