Lavan A. Lukes, 35, of Port Angeles was inadvertently let out of jail after an appearance in county Superior Court in a paperwork mix-up with other inmates to be legally released.
He had been arrested for investigation of two counts of fourth-degree assault, one of which included domestic violence.
Lukes, who Benedict said was never considered dangerous, was scheduled to be charged today.
He showed up at Clallam County Superior Court on his own volition, was taken back to jail, then appeared before Judge Brooke Taylor in rapid succession this afternoon.
Taylor reset Lukes’ bail at $5,000 and his arraignment for 1:39 p.m. today, Benedict said.
