Susan Garner was scheduled to be released on June 19, 1998 from the custody of the Washington Department of Corrections. However, her Community Corrections Officer failed to notify law enforcement as required by statute and she was detained an additional 35 days.

Following her release, Ms. Garner filed a tort claim with the Division of
Risk Management. The Claim was settled for $2000. Ms. Garner was not
represented by counsel. See: Matter of Garner, Tort Claim No. 31034201-01
