I-Team: Convicted pimp accidentally released from jail may still be on the run

LAS VEGAS - A convicted pimp who is now a fugitive may still be on the run. The I-Team first broke the news about how Anthony Galasi was accidentally released from jail on Monday.

Galasi is a convicted pimp who served his time in the Clark County Detention Center, but now, he is a fugitive that law enforcement officers are trying to find.  

Galasi was serving time in the Clark County Detention Center for a charge of first-degree kidnapping and sex trafficking. He was accused of forcing a woman to sell sex and physically abusing her.

However, Galasi took a plea deal, so he was convicted of pandering, which is the same as pimping, but it carries a lesser penalty.

Galasi was sentenced to 120 days in jail, but he received credit for time served, so he released on Feb. 8., but he has an active warrant out of San Francisco, California for a charge of false imprisonment, so he should have never been released.

The department says it's reviewing the chain of events that led to the mistake.  Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Galasi should call the police.

The victim in Galasi's case has gone into hiding ever since he was accidentally released.  The I-Team also reached out to the district attorney's office to find out more information about why Galasi received a plea deal. The victim is apparently upset about the deal.

However, for the second day in a row, the D.A.'s office has responded by saying that no one was available to talk about the case.
