A Poplar Bluff man is in custody again after a mistake let him walk free. 39-year-old Chad Dunahoo was sentenced to seven years in prison for a probation violation in Butler County. Before going to prison, he was transported to Ripley County where he also had misdemeanor charges. After those charges were taken care of, he was taken to Wayne County, where he also faced a misdemeanor charge. Authorities say he was then supposed to go to state prison, but instead, he was released from Wayne County. Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs says he followed the paper trail to find the mistake. He says the officer who transported Dunahoo to Wayne County remembers bringing paperwork with him that stated Dunahoo was not to be released. However, Wayne County Sheriff Dean Finch says they were never given any paperwork, so that’s why they released him.
