Good morning, I am a Criminal Defense attorney and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office, and I'll be answering your questions today.

I'm so sorry to hear about your son's situation.

Based on the information you shared, it sounds as though he is definitely being mistreated. Does he currenlty have an attorney?

The circumstances you've shared here are issues that should definitely be brought to the warden and a judge's attention.

The judge can actually issue an order requiring that your son be placed back in to the program.

There is a prominent organization in Ohio that actually advocates for prison rights, and who may be able to help you get some solutions put in place for your son.

That is the ACLU Ohio. This is their phone number:

(###) ###-####/p>

You should try contacting someone there, explaining your son's situation, and see whether they can do something to help.

This is their website:

http://www.acluohio.org/archives/issue/prisoners-rights

If your son has an attorney already, his attorney can in fact bring these matters up with the judge immediately, circumventing the need to contact the ACLU. However, if he doesn't have an attorney then the ACLU is a very good option.

You may also find this link helpful:

https://www.hrw.org/news/2010/07/20/ohio-prison-resources

It lists several resources to prisoner rights in the Ohio prison system.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
