COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state says it's closing a southeastern Ohio prison unit housing about 430 inmates to save money.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says inmates will be transferred from Hocking Correctional Unit by the end of March.
Agency spokesman Grant Doepel (DOH'-puhl) says Hocking's 110 staff members will be offered jobs at other Ohio prisons, including a facility in nearby Lancaster.
