The West Virginia Supreme Court wants to make sure standards are being followed in Kanawha County Circuit Court after an inmate was mistakenly released from jail.
The court on Tuesday filed an administrative order for an official inquiry into the docket of Circuit Court Judge Carrie Webster.
Webster said Sunday that she did not intend to issue an order that ultimately led to the Thursday release of Jeremy Carter from the South Central Regional Jail. He had been held on an attempted kidnapping charge. Police say he was arrested Monday night.
In a written statement, Webster said her order dismissed a separate motion for a psychiatric evaluation. She says her order did not direct the charge against Carter to be dropped, nor for him to be released from jail.
