Default Parole Rally

RALLY Friday, April 22 11a.m. SE corner of Broad and High
protesting practices of the Ohio Parole Board

Speakers: Attorney Bob Fitrakis (candidate for Franklin County prosecutor)
Cassandra McDonald (candidate for State Representative, District 8)

The Ohio Parole Board is guilty of lack of transparency, "retrying the case" at parole hearings, continuing persons with excellent records based only on "serious nature of the crime, and long wait times for decisions (mental cruelty). Only a very tiny percentage of the 3500-4000 Ohio prisoners who are still subject to parole hearings are being paroled; so-called "New Law" inmates have a fixed, shorter sentence and simply walk out when it expires. Many prisoners have served 20, 30, 40 or more years and have excellent records. Most persons over 55 are not likely to re-offend. Taxpayers bear the brunt of the parole board's severe decisions.
