KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- More problems are occurring at the Osceola County Jail, which could leave workers without jobs.
Alexander Keith, an inmate at Osceola County Jail, passed himself off as someone else to get out of jail.
When police arrested Keith several days ago, he didn't have any identification, but he did have the address, Social Security number and birthday of Harry Carter.
A fingerprint analysis was done, but no one caught the mistake until just a couple of days ago.
A judge let Keith out on a $250 bond. It should have been more than $1,000.
This mix-up comes on the heels of several problems at the facility.
In one month, two men escaped from the jail.
Only one of them has been captured.
Eighteen corrections officers have been put on paid leave. One officer, Milton Caraballo, was arrested and accused of providing escapee Michael Rigby with a metal binder clip.
Both Rigby and Keith are still on the run.
