An inmate charged with aggravated sexual assault was mistakenly released Tuesday afternoon from the Comal County Jail.
Authorities said the Comal County Sheriff’s Office corrections staff inadvertently released Jose Luis Aguilar-Mayorquin, 36, from jail at about 4 p.m.
Aguilar-Mayorquin is 5-feet-5 and weighing about 300 pounds. Investigators said the inmate was last seen wearing blue jeans and a sleeveless gray shirt. The 36-year-old was in jail for an aggravated sexual assault charge.
