“Do no harm" or "Do no expense"? Ohio's prisoners are dying from inadequate medical care In August, the Columbus Dispatch and WBNS-TV published a multi-part exposé of the inadequate medical care in Ohio's prisons. The series exposed wrongful deaths, inadequate care and questionable doctors. Almost 2,600 Ohio prisoners are known to be infected with Hepatitis C and health officials estimate the true figure to be closer to 9,000. As of July, the number of prisoners receiving treatment for Hepatitis C was 16. In September, the Prison Reform Advocacy Center in Cincinnati filed a class action lawsuit challenging these conditions.  
Human Trafficking in Ohio This monograph is designed to provide context about human trafficking in Ohio to help inform and shape public discourse and practical responses to it. To do so, it systematically explores human trafficking in terms of its existence and characteristics and in terms of how the criminal justice and social service communities have responded to it. The goal is to provide policymakers and practitioners with information to help improve their efforts to protect and provide services to victims and to bring perpetrators to justice. This monograph will also be of value to legislators and practitioners in other states who are concerned about this issue, as well as to researchers who are seeking to better understand human tracking and the social response to it.
