24-15-8.2. Notification to victim or sentencing judge of inmate's escape, release, furlough, work release, return from escape, or removal from work release. The victim or the sentencing judge may request in writing to be notified by the Department of Corrections if the inmate who was convicted of committing the crime escapes or is released from the penitentiary, or placed on regularly scheduled furlough or work release pursuant to chapter 24-2, 24-4, or 24-5, or is returned from escape or removed from work release. The Department of Corrections may either telephone the victim or the sentencing judge or send the notice by first class mail to the address provided by the victim or the sentencing judge. However, the Department of Corrections is not liable for any damages to the victim or the sentencing judge if the board fails either to notify the victim or the sentencing judge by telephone or to mail the notice.
