Smith said Harris was being held at Cook County jail awaiting trial in a 2008 murder case and for a possible probation violation in connection with a 2006 weapons case.

Harris was found not guilty in the murder case, and a judge terminated his probation in the weapons case.

Smith said the mistake was discovered Wednesday, when a judge alerted deputies to the error. It's the third such mistake at the jail this year.
