Is it a jailbreak if—through inaction—you are released before your time is up?

Apparently a woman was released from prison a year early due to a paperwork snafu. If she knew that she still had time left and was complicit in the early release by doing nothing to correct the issue, is she liable for the time-honored punishments for jailbreaking prisoners?

Or, conversely, is the County liable for violating the constitution by subjecting the woman to cruel and unsusual punishment in the form of an early release followed by a return to prison?

So many thick juicy questions!
