KOOL Question of the Day

After he was convicted of armed robbery in 2000, Cornealious Anderson was sentenced to 13 years behind bars and told to await instructions on when and where to report to prison. But those instructions never came. 

So Anderson didn't report. He spent the next 13 years turning his life around getting married, raising three kids, learning a trade. He made no effort to conceal his identity or whereabouts. Anderson paid taxes and traffic tickets, renewed his driver's license and registered his 3 businesses. 

Not until last year did the Missouri Department of Corrections discover the clerical error that kept him free. Now he's fighting for release, saying authorities missed their chance to incarcerate him.

The last time anything like this happened in Missouri was 1912. In that case, the convicted man was set free.

The "KOOL Question of the Day" is:

"Should Anderson be set free?"

Yes

No
