Convicted murderer mistakenly released from Cook County Jail

A convicted murderer from Indiana is on the loose because of some bad paperwork in Cook County.

Steven Robbins killed a man in 2002 after a fight at a party.

He isn’t eligible for parole for another 16 years; but Cook County had an old 1992 warrant for Robbins in a separate case.

He went to court Wednesday, and the charge was dropped; then he was sent back to the Cook County jail, and he was supposed to return to a prison in Indiana.

But someone forgot to add that information to his paperwork; and Wednesday evening he was mistakenly released from the jail.

Authorities say Robbins should be considered dangerous; he is 5’5” tall and has a tattoo on the right side of his neck with the word “Nicole,” the name of his ex-wife.

    No wonder Illinois is in the red! They saw fit to pay the expenses to extradite a convicted felon that was already jailed for 60 years to pursue a misdemeanor charge against him from 2002? Perhaps the expenses used for this insanity could have been used for a credible purpose.

    I am so mad I cannot get my head around it. It is bad enough that Illinois has a catch and release program here. So we are so successful at it that we need to import criminals from other states so we can turn them loose?
