Quotes

"We have approximately 3,200 probationers in Columbus," Walker explained. "This is a major concern, because many probationers will get out but fail to find employment. Sometimes when offenders can't find new jobs, they may end up going back to do the same things they did before they were placed on probation."
"About 98 percent of these people are going to return (from prison) and come back into the community," she said. "And when they come back, they're going to be your neighbor, my neighbor and everybody else's neighbor. So why not try and help them get a job?"
"We tell employers that although some of these people may have a little blemish on their background, they are willing to work hard," Walker said. "They just need a second chance. I believe the probationers who are serious about working will do a tremendous job."
"The people who are supposed to be running our prisons have apparently lost control over them" Sen. Fort said
