Hi- Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question.
Handicap placards are only available based on a doctor's prescription for a specified licensed driver. I am so sorry to have to tell you that according to the people at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), you cannot get a placard for him. I know the hassle of trying to drive for someone with a handicap.
Perhaps there is a way to get your friend's license back? Here is the link to the license reinstatement forms, in case that is something your friend wants to try.
