I often have people ask "can you tell me if XXX is in prison?"
It may sound like a simple question, but many people do not know how to find out if their loved one is in prison or jail. I also often get calls from victims of crime wanting to know if the person who attacked/victimized them is still in prison.
While each jail is different, and only a few local jails have online inmate registries, we have found a website that contains contact information for Ohio's jails and links to online inmate registries.
Ohio has an easy-to-use website to determine if someone is in jail; what their charges are; and when their release date is expected to be. You can also get their address and mail them cards/letters of support.
For your benefit, below is the link for the inmate locator:
