October 27, 2020 (Omaha, Neb.) – An inmate who discharged from the Omaha Correctional Center (OCC) on Monday, October 26, 2020 is back in custody. The Nebraska State Patrol arrested Amjad Almusa #211436 in Omaha this morning.

Almusa had a detainer, which would have required his transfer to the Norfolk Regional Center upon completion of his prison sentence. That detainer was overlooked and he left OCC yesterday morning.

Almusa started serving his sentence on April 27, 2020. He received a maximum one year sentence for two counts of assault on a Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) employee out of Madison County.

The circumstances surrounding his release remain under investigation by NDCS.
