Man freed from prison faces possible deportation to Cuba

Man Mistakenly Released From Prison Lived Upstanding Life, Now Gets Released For Real

In his ruling, Samour said, "In effect, after its utter lack of care led to Lima-Marin's premature release and prolonged erroneous liberty, in January 2014 the government made a decision to compensate for its transgressions by swiftly turning back the clock and returning Lima-Marin to prison - not through the use of a magic wand or the invention of a time machine built out of a DeLorean, which might have transported him back to his life in April 2008, but through the simple issuance of an arrest warrant, which merely put him back in prison, disregarding everything that had transpired between April 2008 and January 2014".

Lima-Marin's wife, Jasmine, was eating lunch in her vehicle at work when she heard the good news about her husband's re-release.

DENVER (AP) — What was supposed to be a joyous homecoming for a Colorado man whose 98-year prison term was cut short turned to heartache when he was detained by immigration officials just as he was set to be released.

There was no immediate word from the state Department of Corrections on when Lima-Marin would be released from a prison in southern Colorado, the newspaper reported.

But it's not clear whether Lima-Marin, who was ordered deported while in prison, will be returned there since the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has little power over cases of deportation of Cuban nationals.

"Daddy's coming home!" she said.

On Tuesday, a judge said Lima-Marin has paid his debt to society.

"His case was unique in that sense", Diego said. A paperwork mix-up led to him being improperly released in 2008, and it would take prison officials until 2014 to figure out he was no longer behind bars.

Lima-Marin's attorney Kimberly Diego says Lima-Marin came to the USA from Cuba at the age of 2 during the 1980 Mariel boatlift. His sentences for these crimes were to be served consecutively for a 98-year sentence and a possible parole date of October 2053.

2008 - Lima-Marin is released from prison after serving just eight years because of the clerk's error.

His father, Eli Borges, told the Post that Lima-Marin became a legal resident when they arrived but never applied for USA citizenship like his parents had done.

Lima-Marin and another man are convicted on multiple robbery, kidnapping and burglary charges in connection with two violent robberies of suburban Denver video stores. No shots were fired and no one was injured in the robberies, per the judge's document. "The government-not Lima-Marin, his family, the community, and society-should bear the brunt of the consequences of its conscience-shocking deliberate indifference".

The legal battle ended Tuesday when Chief Arapahoe County District Judge Carlos Samour Jr. issued a 165-page ruling that ordered for Lima-Marin's release. "No other remedy will result in justice in this case".

Instead, he walked into the long, tangled arms of federal immigration law and is now in the custody of agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

The state case surrounding Lima-Marin has been high-profile for weeks. "We are thankful that he took the time that he did".

A spokesperson for the Colorado Attorney General's office said they are now reviewing the case.
