Ohio Prison Works To Reduce Inmate Assaults
A report says inmate-on-inmate assaults increased nearly 100 percent in two years at a north-central Ohio prison, higher than the statewide average.
The report says disturbances at Mansfield Correctional Institution also went up, while guards at the 2,500-inmate facility say morale is low.
The analysis by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee notes the prison has a challenging inmate population with frequent gang-related incidents and numerous inmates transferred in because of discipline problems.
The report was issued just days before a convicted rapist escaped from the prison Wednesday only to be captured 24 hours later.
The report says conditions are improving under Warden Terry Tibbals and that Mansfield is the only prison of those with the same security level statewide to reduce its total violent incident rate two years running.
