Office of the Ohio Public Defender Recent Death Penalty News Articles
Former Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Director Terry Collins told WCPO Cincinnati on Wednesday that Ohio's death penalty "isn't worth fixing." Collins, who served as ODRC's Director from 2006 to 2010, has nearly 33 years experience in corrections. Collins and other former and current public safety officials - law enforcement agents, prosecutors, and corrections officials - oppose the death penalty because it is "ineffective, expensive, and makes mistakes." The organization, Public Safety Officials on the Death Penalty, advocates for "alternative ways to achieve a more just and effective public safety system."
