State authorities are searching for an Ohio inmate on the lam this afternoon. As WOSU reports, the prisoner walked away from work detail.
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.
