The FBI, Marshals Service and Cook County Crime Stoppers are offering a combined reward of $12,000 for information that leads to the apprehension of a man who was accidentally released from Cook County Jail.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart took responsibility Friday for mistakenly letting a man serving 60 years in Indiana for murder walk out of County Jail after a local charge against him was dismissed.

“We let people down, no mistake about it,” Dart said, “Our office did not operate the way it should have clearly.”

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


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.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cook County’s tip line at 847-635-1188 or local law enforcement.
