In this May 7, 2014 photo, Rene Lima-Marin sits for an interview with The Associated Press about the circumstances of his sentencing and incarceration, in a meeting room inside Kit Carson Correctional Center, a privately operated prison in Burlington, Colo. Lima-Marin, who was sent back to prison after being mistakenly released 90 years early, says it was cruel and unusual punishment to put him back behind bars after he reformed his life. An appeal filed Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 in his case also says his constitutional rights were violated when a judge in January ordered him to finish his sentence after he started a family during nearly six years of freedom. A judge in 2000 sentenced Lima-Marin to a total of 98 years in prison for multiple counts stemming from the robbery of two video stores when Lima-Marin was 20. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)DENVER (AP) — A Colorado convict sent back to prison after being mistakenly released 90 years early says it was cruel and unusual punishment to put him back behind bars after he reformed his life.
