Modern-day debtors’ prison alleged in Ohio

Modern-day debtors’ prison alleged in Ohio

NBC News-

Several courts in Ohio are illegally jailing people because they are too poor to pay their debts and often deny defendants a hearing to determine if they’re financially capable of paying what they owe, according to an investigation released Thursday by the Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU likens the problem to modern-day debtors’ prisons. Jailing people for debt pushes poor defendants farther into poverty and costs counties more than the actual debt because of the cost of arresting and incarcerating individuals, the report said.

“The use of debtors’ prison is an outdated and destructive practice that has wreaked havoc upon the lives of those profiled in this report and thousands of others throughout Ohio,” the report said.

  1. It appears some judges are invested in the prisons and tax dollars pay for this crime just like the bail outs. I will try to find the article on the judges being invested. Haliburton associated with our last Vice president built the FEMA camps.
