Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Two Central Ohio lockups for juveniles have some of the nationâ€™s highest rates of sexual assault against inmates.
Ohio’s prison population recently topped 50,000 inmates, or more than 30 percent over capacity. The crowded prisons has subtly changed how wardens, corrections officers, and other prison workers do their jobs. At the Pickaway Correctional Institution, near Orient, more than 2,300 inmates are serving time.
