FREMONT COUNTY - The court administrator tells the 9Wants to Know investigators it has completed its review of prisoner sentences and found two more errors.

Fremont County is in the 11th Judicial District and is the same district that made the mistake which allowed suspected murderer Evan Ebel to go free four years early.

After 9Wants to Know discovered a clerical error, the court pledged to review all similar sentences to make sure there were not other problems.

Two mistakes were made, according to a statement from the 11th Judicial District, and "minor sentencing adjustments" had to be made.

The court administrator could not say Monday evening which cases were affected.

"We believe these are isolated instances and there is not a systemic problem in data entry of sentencing," Court Administrator Walter Blair said in the statement to 9NEWS.
