Inmate mistakenly released re-captured shortly after escape
Deontae Markeem Coker
A man mistakenly released Saturday night from the Bulloch County Jail was recaptured less than an hour after he was let go, according to a release from the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office. Deontae Markeem Coker, awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to several felonies, was an inmate at the jail and was released around 7:45 p.m. under another inmate's name who had been granted a bond. The Bulloch County Jail received a transfer bond from Henry County, Ga., for an inmate with the last name of Coker as well.
