Did you know that 1 in 6 people in Ohio have a criminal conviction?
How about the fact that nearly 20,000 people get released from prison in Ohio every year? Add to that another 20,000 that go to prison every year.
It is estimated that 1 in 35 Ohioans is on some kind of supervision, probation or parole; and it’s 1 in 25 in Summit County.
“That’s really high. And these people are coming home whether we help them or not,” Terry Tribe Johnson, Summit County Reentry Coordinator, said.
