(CNN) -- A former member of the radical 1970s group Symbionese Liberation Army is back in custody after a clerical error miscalculated her prison release date, a California Department of Corrections spokesman said Saturday.
Sara Jane Olson wipes away a tear at a Los Angeles courthouse in 1999.
Sara Jane Olson was freed Monday.
But her earliest release date is now March 17, 2009, Chief Deputy Secretary Scott Kernan said, calling the error "an aberration."
"Our department immediately rearrested her, and she will serve her full sentence," Kernan said. He described Olson as cooperative and said the arrest took place "without incident."
She will serve the year at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, California.
"The department is sensitive to the impact such an error has had on all involved in this case and sincerely regrets the mistake," Kernan said.
An investigation is under way to find out how the error happened, he added.
David Nickerson, one of Olson's attorneys, said he and co-counsel Shawn Chapman Holley intend to file a petition with Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday.
Olson cannot be treated as "yo-yo" in regard to the law, he said.
Chapman Holley called her return to custody "ridiculous." "It's like they make up all new rules when it comes to her," Chapman Holley told The Associated Press. "It's like we are in some kind of fascist state."
Subtle message, noted.

Obviously she should do the time imposed; but I wonder if Cali actually thought this through all the way. Is getting her to do the last 1/7th of her fairly imposed sentence worth the embarrassment of having to admit they made a large mistake? This sort of stuff is how people end up losing faith in their government and it probably would have been better for the people of California if it had been swept under the rug.
