Murderer Accidentally Released From Prison

Last updated on Monday, February 14, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - A parole officer is expected to lose her job over mistakes that led to Thomas Hardy being released from prison.

Hardy has been charged with murder following the shooting death of Indianapolis Metro Police Officer David Moore.

Billie Ruffner, a 28-year-old Indiana Department of Correction Employee has been suspended without pay pending termination for dereliction of duty.

The IDOC says Ruffner failed to conduct monthly checks on national police databases. She is also accused of not noting that Hardy had been charged with a felony, and not creating a note of revocation and notifying the parole board.
