Cornealious 'Mike' Anderson*His is a sigh of relief that can probably be heard around the world.

Cornealious “Mike” Anderson was 23 when he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for his role in the robbery of a fast-food restaurant’s assistant manager. He was told to wait until he was contacted, in order to serve his time.

He waited…and waited…and waited.

Anderson had been “hiding” in plain site. He filed his taxes on time from the small business he started; coached kids in sports, got married and started a family before the clerical error that had kept him free for more than a decade caught up with him.

In 2013, at the age of 36, he was contacted and became known as prisoner 1039699.
