Area common pleas courts to share ODRC grant

Logan County Common Pleas Court is among four area courts of common pleas set to share $510,564 in grant funding awarded through the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

The Probation Improvement and Incentive Grant will be allocated for fiscal year 2014-15. It provides funding to courts of common pleas and local probation departments to adopt evidence-based practices to reduce the recidivism rate for defendants subject to community control and to decrease the number of offenders convicted of fourth- or fifth-degree felonies that would be sentenced to prison.

The West Central Community Correctional Facility in Marysville will be managing the grant and all aspects of the program.
