Prison Assaults Concern Union

Written by

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The union representing Ohio prison guards wants an extra 400 officers to combat what it calls a sharp increase in the number of serious assaults by inmates on staff.

The union says an upcoming state budget proposal of 83 officers at three individual prisons is not enough and will lead to more injuries and added workers' comp and overtime costs.

The Ohio Civil Service Employees Association said Thursday the major assault rate has hit a 7-year high even as nearly 850 guard positions have been cut.

Guard Monica Meade said she was off work for three months last year after an inmate at Trumbull Correctional Institution punched her after threatening to throw her off a second-floor balcony.

A message was left with the state Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A sentencing date has been set for an Ohio pediatric doctor who has pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography.

Christopher Pelloski, former director of Ohio State University's pediatric cancer radiation program, faces up to 10 years in prison after his November guilty plea to a single count of accessing digital files intending to view child pornography.

Columbus federal judge Algenon Marbley scheduled the May 2 sentencing date on Thursday.

A criminal complaint against Pelloski last summer said he acknowledged to investigators that he used his home desktop computer and a laptop belonging to Ohio State to download child pornography, including videos and photos.

Pelloski's lawyer has said Pelloski pleaded guilty to take responsibility for the crime.

Athens County to Seek Interim Sheriff

Written by

   ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Commissioners in a southeast Ohio county plan to appoint a temporary replacement for a sheriff indicted in a corruption case.
   Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly has denied wrongdoing and vowed to fight the charges at trial in September.
   The Ohio Supreme Court had a panel of judges consider whether Kelly should be suspended in the meantime. In a statement provided to local reporters Wednesday, Kelly says he won't challenge the recommended suspension.
   Commissioners are expected to choose a temporary replacement Thursday.  
   The charges against Kelly include theft in office, tampering with records and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. Kelly is suspected of improperly using public funds to buy meals and personal apparel, selling county property to a scrapyard and stealing wire from a county garage, among other allegations.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio automobile dealers have struck a deal that will allow Tesla Motors to sell its electric cars in the state.
   The agreement with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association was negotiated on Tuesday and approved by a Senate panel.
   The bill allows Tesla to keep its existing stores in the Columbus and Cincinnati areas, and allows a third to open in Cleveland, but prohibits the company from opening any other stores.
   The bill allows no other automaker to operate manufacturer-owned stores in the state.
   Ohio was among states proposing to block Tesla from setting up additional direct-sales galleries on grounds they undercut traditional auto dealerships.  Dealers saw Tesla as a threat to a system in which nearly all dealerships are independently owned franchises that are separate from manufacturers.
