COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov.-elect John Kasich has named an executive at a private prison management company and former warden as the state’s next corrections director.

At an event today in Chillicothe, Kasich announced Gary Mohr as his pick to head the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. A 36-year veteran of the corrections industry, Mohr served previously as assistant state prisons director and superintendent of youth prisons. He was warden of Chillicothe Correctional Institution, Ross Correctional Institution, and the Corrections Reception Center.

Mohr is a managing director at the Corrections Corporation of America, which designs, builds, manages and operates federal, state and local prisons across the country. He succeeds prisons director Ernie Moore.

I have a problem believing private prisons will solve anything.The staff are not trained properly to handle situations and protect inmates. There are more assaults and a 50%staff turnover.Youngstown crime rate went up since they privatized.

Suggest removal:
